Building the wooden fish
I just got this video from Aitor in Spain showing his building process.
" I recently finished my last board, a 6.6-21-2 3/4 fish, its a copy of the Surftech Soul Fish.
It has a good bouyancy, and surfs really smooth, as its my first glassing work it is a little bit heavy, but in the water it is not a problem if you are looking for a soul and calm surf.
It is made of paulownia for the stringer, ribs and rails and paulownia red cedar for the deck and bottom, and 6 oz fiber glass with bamboo fins."
