Tail blocks and finless fun

 Roger Hall in New Zealand is experimenting further with his finless Hot Curl boards. Like he does he puts everything into it. So not just foam and glass. No not Roger he has hundred of pieces of timber as the stringer as he glues up the blank as above.

 All carefully glued up to be sliced with perfection and added to the stringer line for looks and weight I would suspect.

Stringer done, but not Roger.
 The tail block to add weight where you need it to hold the finless tail into the wave.

He is a master craftsman for sure.
This is the 7ft prototype 

Taking the finless drop

Fully tested and a happy man, thinking of the next step.
Nothing wrong with this one
