READY TO GLASS

This is a little double ender.
The blank was from an old 70's backyard single fin.
The tiger stripe was done by dipping a length of wool in acrylic paint
and then draped on the painted blank and pulled tight around the rails.

DALE TRANSITION / HULL

Back to reality.
Ready to rebond the glass.
The join will be hidden behind a pinline.

1ST POINT NOOSA







Got lucky again.
Plenty of waves.
Cyclone Hamish washed away all of the beach.
The 1st point take off has moved west about 40 to 50m.
The sucky outside take off was closing out.
The low tide sweep was horrendous this year.
Must be something to do with the changed conditions.
