Very cool! How does a board like that get conceived and executed? What kind of artwork does the customer/designer have to supply? What is the medium?
The carpet too, is moving under you…
It looks like my grandmother knitted that board.
There’s a lot of weight soaked up in that fabric.
good point on the weight…any estimate on how much a cloth inlay like that adds to the overall weight of the board? What’s the experience there at Moonlight?
Stoked on how this one came out! Great job Moonlight crew. Thanks for the dilligent work.
All fabrics soak up resin differently. We squeegee out as much as possible but if weight is your number one concern then maybe a fabric inlay isn’t for you. This board has lightweight fins but it also has a full 6 oz glass job. Some people don’t wind board weight as long as there is no tail weight from the fins.
If you can surf well on a 5lb. board you can surf well on a 6lb. board. It’s not gonna make that much difference.
I put finger prints all over that board today!
A heavy board with ultra light fins makes no sense to me.I think heavy or retro boards have a nice balance of weight.Now a shortboard with not much nose probably will benefit from fin lightness.All about balance, I believe.
Lots of craftsmanship in that board,looks like, and its looks wonderful- lucky the guy who gets to try it out. Great job Moonbase and EHO
Sweet shred sled! Does it come with a deep shag deck patch?
