It's been a long time in the planning and making but I finally picked up my new log today. Having had a big input in the design and shaping I was a little apprehensive she wouldn't look like I'd pictured. She didn't, the tint was a little lighter, the pink was slightly subtler all in all it was better, all expectations were exceeded, phew. Only downside is in his haste Chris forgot to sign it but like I said, it won't surf any the worse for it.
Then debated on getting in for little wave this afternoon but as the wind had swung onshore I decided I was going to make she'd cured properly and save it for a properly nice clean day. I imagine there's nothing worse than having a crap first surf on a new board.
