New life from a broken surfboard
A friend of mine called me one day and said I have 3/4 of a broken 9ft board, would you like it.
He was surfing on a pretty big day when the board broke a couple feet from the nose.
He stripped all the glass off the board and it was ready to be re-shaped for the second time and a new life.
This is the outline I could cut out of the remaining blank, which was about 3 inches thick.
I decided to go with a 1970s style single fin outline as much as I could with what was left of the blank.
I had to do a lot of rough shaping to shape in the nose, rocker and tail rocker Rails etc.
This board could be ridden in the right Surf.
