This is Tim Staffords new 6’8” x 20 1/4” x 2 5/8” Cleanline EVO5 with oak parabolic rails, epoxy 6oz bottom and a wood/epoxy 4oz sandwich deck. He is aiming to achieve a superlight wood option with a more traditional flex pattern.
" Here we have the EPS core shaped last week… yesterday Jason glassed it in 6oz epoxy on the bottom with 4 oz cut rails all in a pastel olive green… and it looks amazing with its angular rails ready and waiting for next weeks 1.5mm wood deck and some 3/8” parabolic oak rails… then it comes back for a 4 oz clear epoxy deck and rail wrap before it gets its FCS bonzers in an EVO5 set-up. So it is half Glass Tiger half epoxy Cleanline for Indo… The shape has a little more rocker than I normally put in to fit the curvy faces we hope to be surfing, and to help control all that speed. Only reservation I have is I don’t want to get hit by those oak rails!"

" Big thanks to Mark, Jason, Daz and Nigel for pushing this one through in time for the Mentwais trip, leaving this Thursday. Right now Daz is getting the FCS plugs in and fighting against the clock to have it hard enough to flip over, do the valve, the fin box + drill through, and then sand it before I go."
Well Tim is off on his trip so I hope the board was finished and dry enough to pack as it all seemed to be happening at the last minute.Looks like a pretty tidy package and can't wait to see the trip report Tim.Tim loves his bonzers and inventive hand crafted fins he builds.
