Tail dip resin tint

The project is nearly done, and just in time as well as my wife is due to have our 2nd child this week. Here Peter Mo and I are adding the epoxy glass to the underside of the board. I chose a tail dip resin tint to add some extra interest to the board. The colour cane out redder than we expected, but I am not unhappy with the result. For me when building these boards I've had to learn that it is not always and exact science and this is part of the charm of the board.

Final dimensions of the board are 5' 4" x 20" x 3.5". Fins are a modified simmons/keel design (see below)

Should be able to take "Little Suzie" out for a slide sometime next week. :)
