Had a super trip to the Gold Coast.
The waves were small but the sun was out and the water was warm.
The wooden surfboard day was such a ripper I forgot to take any photo's.
Check out the massive variety of boards and people at the event on Grant Newby's Blog
Super stoked with my new paipo aka 'The Bomber'
It's an absolute speed machine, and I'm loving the concave deck.

A behind the scenes look at the process of adding veneer artwork to the boards.
Laying out the design.
With thin veneer some pieces are incredibly fragile.
Gloves, fiddly veneers and resin makes for a slightly messy glue up.
Larger full deck designs require careful planning and layout to ensure the design fits together an everything lines up before the resin kicks.
Add a brush coat of resin, the messy glue up disappears and the colours and grain stand out.
Next step is a sand to fair it out before glassing.
