       I figure it's running about 30-31 lt.
Don't let it fool you, -its a Graveler

It will probably surf better than it looks.
A good substitute for the Stoneman.
       Could have used it the past two days because it was really sucky out there, but I just wanted to get wet.
       Yesterday was better than today. The problem is also that the tides are too high early in the morning and by time it gets right, the wind comes up.
       The stuff on the nose is temporary; but if it holds up without braking on me, I figure in a month or two, I'll do a cool paint job on it.
       I figure it will be way hotter than that Uni-bag of glue thing I had and should catch waves as good or better.

I must have made them in all the right places.

It surfs better than it looks.
I guess doing a few things different than the norm can be a good thing.
Like my Rails: I will have to refer to them as Kiwi Rails, because of the actual creator, or should I say the only guy I've ever seen do them was a goofy foot who was from New Zealand and the last heard he had settled in at Seaside, Oregon. (Which is a really good left.)
       He met up with his girlfriend in Washington and Shaped a few boards for Al's Surf Shop.
       I must say he is one of the best shapers I ever met.
       I got a kick out of the tar paper shaping booth he threw together and how he labeled his boards where glasser's usually do with paint in a simple spray bottle and a stencil of a little Kiwi.
       Anyhow, his rails where both sharp and soft, and I got to actually find out how well they work for myself.
       I like the fact that my rails turned out thin and still have a good feel to them.
My Bottom also turned out nice. I'm sure having the board a couple inches longer than I actually needed to make it, but the extra inches will make it more versatile in the long run. (For bigger waves and or blown onshore mush.)
       What's nice about it is that its a fast board if you step forward, (and still loose,) and it's nothing to slowing it down by standing on the tail.
       None the less, I did do my own single concave upfront that splits into two that ends up a Vee out the back. There are so many variations of it, but somehow I think I got it right. (I think the mild rocker with a fair amount of flip out the back has a lot to do with it combined.)
       By stepping on the tail has that quick responsiveness as my old round tail, however it doesn't sink in so much when I do, -which helps it handle well in weak waves.
       With all that in collaboration, it works extremely well with the conditions we have here were the sandbar gets channels and you never know when the wave will lay down on you and you need to nurse it through the weak section, (were the extra width keeps the board on plane.)
Bottom line is: how great it matches my style.

March 20th, 2016:
I have to say that my board has to be the most versatile board I've ever surfed;
       To say the least I would have to say that it's the best board I've ever surfed.
       I did decide that it is just a bit loose with the smaller AM1 I used on my other tri-fin on the back. I'm going with EA's front and back with this one.
       I'm sure the people who have been watching me surf are going to say I'm surfing better than ever on this board.
       I'm pulling my cut-backs sooner, because it's not as fast as my Quad, which often had me out running the pocket sometime. Also I'm not having to jump forward or shuffle my feet forward as much because all I have to do is widen my stance and I have everything covered, (the very reason everyone like to surf boards under six foot.)
      I think going with the narrower nose was very beneficial when it come to making it surf like a shorter board. It also kept in riding smoother in choppy stuff.
      And the extra thick tip also helps balance it out while paddling. I don't have to paddle up hill with this one and is sure does paddle nice. The volume sure seems to be perfect for me too.


Update 4/26/16:
Got to do some graveling this morning.

It's hard to beat the Stoneman at catching them, but this new board sure holds on to a walled up sections better.
       Oh yeah, I never got around to posting anything about the glass job.
       I went with 4 oz. S-glass on the bottom with two E-4's on top with a Garret Angel-Wing reinforcement patch on the rear and he came up with a nice Diamond patch in the middle of the topside; both in 4 oz. S-glass. I have to say that the board as a whole turned out noticeably lighter than my first one. (My first board was Blue foam instead of Red and I had gone with 6 oz. S-glass on the bottom.)
       I can tell already that the durability has proven pretty impressive.
