Now this is extreme ? Dave Rastavich taking the drop at Sunset on his Alaia. A skinny arse finless piece of wood. I don't think the ancient Hawaiians would mind the early endevours being the inspiration for this piece of history.
Troy looks like he has a pretty good setup and makes a nice board. Check him out at www.talkingfishsurfboards.com
Here are a couple of shots of his latest project which is slowly coming to life.
" Basically it’s a 9’6” x 23” old school single fin longboard. Paulownia and ply frame with some nice paulownias planks for the bottom and deck. I worked pretty hard on the templates with this one – the thicker stringer allowed me to foil the nose and tail down quite fine. I am keen to see just what the foil looks like when I get the deck on. Got the timber from John Whitewood at Tyalgum just over the border – it’s great to work with."
Sure looks like a nice shape and should be a real trim machine. Thanks for the pics and keep us posted.
