Making of two custom handshaped Surfboards out of one blank.

These boards go back to the roots of wave riding from the islands.

 I used a 7’4 blank to best match the rocker and thickness I was after.  The blank is by usblanks out of Bashams in San Clemente,Ca.  I literally cut the blank in half.

This shot is how much of the thickness I had to cut down using an electric planer, from 3.1/8 down to 1.50 to 1.5/8.
