The big hydro simmons in wood for big Dave.

Dave is a big guy at 6ft 7" and 130 kg so he wanted a big board to fill out his quiver. So I built him a 7ft 6" x 26" board at 80 litres. Here he is tonight picking it up to get glassed on the Sunshine Coast. His normal board is a 7ft 6" x 22 1/2" short board from Sunova at 48 litres. He might be big but he can surf. Thats a 5ft 6" x 19" I have that is just oiled in Lanolin. Very light with 3mm skins top and bottom. I am taking it to New Zealand in a couple of weeks for the first Fish Fry over there at Waipu Cove.
These two are all taped up with fins marked for boxes to be routed in. 5ft 6" x 22" hydro simmons and a 6ft x 22" fish with the same bottom contours in the middle and rear with a slight rolled entry in the nose.One of these may end up in New Zealand as well.
