so after the qcel mix I went with a very thin coat of resin to fill some of the holes yo get when you sand the qcel then a coat of 2k black primer and then a coat of 2k white and sanded back. Its so nice working with the new sander and not having clouds of dust in the air and being able to see what you are doing the hole time. Its also nice being able to flick it out of the geared mode when you want to tone it down and be less aggressive.

Gorgeous , well done, with a very British board stand.

I like the contrast between the bright yellow and the whitish carbon.

Fantastic board Charlie, but the board stand has to be the most original display device ever.

cheers yea it makes a great little board stand although it was a little tricky today as its been super windy hence no vertical shots. looking like we should have 30-40knots blowing again this weekend so hopefully i will be able to get a few runs in on it.

Charlie, you are a true renaissance man.
It may be overhead to you, but it's waist high to me.

got a very quick vid from last weekends run on the old board I made, it was another good 40knot run in the harbor so zero fetch wind swell and only over about a 3.6 mile distance, more surfing than paddling and  needing very little effort to get on to the bumps! sorry it was also very wet and grey so quality is pretty poor.

Beautiful board and back yard!  I personally like my downwind boards with more volume in the nose but I think you said you kept it thin to make it less susceptible to side winds, so I'm interested to hear how that works out.  Let us know how she rides!

That's a great vid.

Following on from Robert's comment, why do so many DW boards have so much volume, especially in the middle? Is it just to accommodate the occasional larger paddler? Volume above the waterline isn't contributing much, and being higher above the waterline has obvious stability and paddle power shortcomings.
