Grown Surfboards. Head a a couple of great looking boards at the Fish Fry the other weekend. Well he has been turning his hand to foam and these are the results. They are a 5' 2" simmons style fish, a 5' 6" pintail hull, and another 5' 6" mini simmons. I think it is a great learning experience to shape in foam as well as wood , as it gives you a better feel for the whole shaping process. It is also a far cheaper and more cost effective way of checking out a design in foam before committing to wood and all that is involved there.
