Nathan Grey and another sweet board - The Show Pony
" I put this together while waiting for a delivery of wood for a bookcase I was building.
The show pony is a wooden version of the white pony that Richard Kenvin and I think Larry Mabile came up with.
5,4” -22” -2, 5/8”
Built from Balsa and some red cedar, Bottom shape is a hull upfront blending into a bonzer like double concave that runs in between the fins.
The fins I laid up with paulownia in center with 6oz carbon fibre then red cedar, they have a nice firm flex to them.
The board flies, a bit like the Sim fish but with a little more bite from the shallow fish tail.
Cant wait to get it on to a point break in the future, but for now sand sucking Bondi close outs will have to do.
OH yeah the book case was not finished on time."
