Fine sanding a new hand shaped surfboard.
Some simple tips from a rough shape to a fine sanded completed surfboard.
I use 60 grit first with a flat block for the blending and smoothing out the lines on on the bottom and the deck. Next I will use the 1 inch foam block with 60 grit to blend the deck to the rails. Last I use 80 grit for the fine sanding.
These are standard sized sand paper with a balsa block cut to your hand size. You can use any type of wood, I like a lighter wood such as balsa.
I have 3 sanding blocks, one with flat no foam and one with half inch and one with 1inch foam, I mainly use the flat and 1inch foam.
