Latest Build ... Tic Tac Two
« on: March 24, 2019, 12:56:16 PM »
I've really been enjoying my 7-0 Tic Tac so I thought I'd build another with a few changes. 

Design Changes from 7-0 Tic Tac
- 5" shorter
- 1/4" wider
- 1/8" thicker
- Lower nose rocker
- 2+1 only (no quad option)

Build Changes
- Ordered the Marko blank and CNC cut from Bashams instead of directly from Marko.  The board was cut from a Marko Stringerless 7-0 SUP blank (1.5# EPS).   Bashams did a fabulous job for a lot less than it costs from Marko.
- Did not seal the blank with Z-Seal (I'm getting lazy).

Glassing will be 6+6/6 the same as on my 7-0 Tic Tac.   I am shooting for a finished weight under 10lb.   Not sure if skipping the sealing step will add weight.  I dropped it off for glassing earlier today so hope to have it in the water sometime in April. 

Here's the design plus a photo of the original Tic Tac.

Wow, it's amazing that you're able to SUP a board of such small dimensions...I've had surfboards darn near that size. :o :)

Cool looking board though...I like the bottom's "wavestorm" kind of look.  8)

I'm working on a Potato shape. I'm going to have Basham's cut it. I'll get Brawner to glass it. My home shop is still a big mess full of boxes. It's pissing me off, roof leaks and other home repairs keep sucking up my project time.

Having fun on that temporary Doheny Point Break right?

Thanks.  The paint for both the Tic Tacs are based on the Odysea Log soft top.  Here's the bottom of the Tic Tac v1.

Very cool.  I am interested in hearing how the Brawner glass job goes.  I called them a while back to get a quote for glassing and they quoted me over $600 so I didn't pursue it any further.

Yes!  Yesterday early morning was really fun :-)

Picked up the board today.  Weight is 9lbs 4oz so I am happy about that.    Bashams did a great job on the cut and the glassing.  Still deciding on what traction I want to go with so I only have wax on it right now.  Ride report (if I can stand on it) coming soon.

1st session this morning.   Definitely a little harder to pop up to a standing position but once standing it is stable and paddles nicely.    I need more time to dial the board in but I can already tell I am going to like this board.

Officially smaller than my main prone board now.

Unreal.  My main prone board is a 6'10 Addvance with essentially the same volume!  How are you standing on these!??

The key for me has been moving down in very small increments.  My last 4 boards have decreased by 2-3L (3-4%) every 6 months (75L > 72L > 70L > 68L).    Small changes make the transition a lot easier.

Sweet! Even though you're only 160, that's still some crazy low volume. What, are you an adult or a 20 year old without an ounce of fat? :o After Tourmaline in San Diego, Doheny has to be one of the most gutless waves on the coast so I'm kind of surprised you like to ride that board there. Nice glass job too. What's the glassing schedule and what did Bashams charge to do it?

Ha!  I wish.  I am 50.

I have been happy with the last two glass jobs that Bashams have done.   Both of my last boards have 2x 6oz E on the top and 1x 6oz E on the bottom.    This keeps the board light but gives enough strength to withstand my typical use.   Glassing cost was $260.  This is for up to 7' Epoxy ($250) + $10 for the 2+1 setup.   The blank and hi res CNC cut were $170 so total cost for this board was $430.

I'm about ready to build a new board and San Clemente is fairly close to me so I have a few questions, por favor. Did you design it yourself with Shape 3D? Did Bashrams do everything (cut the blank, CNC shaping, color, glassing)?
