That came out nice!  Nice size, too.

Do you know what it weighs?

My friend Jeff Clark just made a board that looks the same.  You guys have some sort of Vulcan mind meld?

He claimed he doesn't actually build boards much anymore but sent a few shots of it getting built. 

Kind of Fugly until it wasn't.

6' 3" X 30" X ??

He has been putting a windsurfing mast track in the front of the board.  He then bolts an aluminum plate ~ 8" wide X 10" long onto the track.  He can then install footstrap inserts all over the aluminum plate.  Move the plate forward, backward.  Drill more holes.  Switch from Regular to Goofy . . . . Interesting idea.
