Don't paint it! I would paddle a board that looks like that in a second. Nicely done.

+1. It will stand out for sure. Very special. (maybe save a pound or two on weight?)

Got it wet!!
 Short paddle. Didn't snap in half, didn't sink. All good.
 Seemed plenty stable and tracked well. Calm but there were lots of boats about so a bit choppy. Still a little swell from the breeze and paddling with it the board had that feeling it wanted to go. Stood a bit too far fwd and buried the nose and tracked straight. Surprising how little chop it takes to come over the bow. Dosnt come back into the standing area though. Standing area seems to drain ok when water does get in there. When I'm not standing on the drain holes! Really like the recessed standing area and being able to push the sides of your feet against the vertical part. Need to get some pad! Bit slippery!

Turned out pretty heavy. About 13.5 kgs. I think it's just under 14. Not too happy about that. Didn't do a final weigh. Last time I weighed it was before the handle went in and final coat of epoxy.

13-14 KG is not bad all things considered. Especially if the construction is bomber? Not ideal for racing but other than that pretty good.

Take a look at RSPRO's hexapad, especially the cork version. It would look great on that board and the weight is a fraction of traditional pads.

I have used hexapad or equivalent but found it uncomfortable for longer paddles. I plan to use cork. I have loads left from other boards I've built. I just couldn't wait to get it on the water.

I generally use a small pad where my feet go usually and then hexatraction elsewhere. I've found hexatraction holds wax as long or longer than a waxed pad, which means I wax them once and then never again until I notice my feet slipping--which so far is never. I wish I didn't have a standard pad on my flying dutchman foil board, I'm sure it's adding a few pounds when it's wet.

The Hexatraction cork panels feel much better than the standard ones. I figure on using them together on boards, with the cork ones where my feet usually go and standard elsewhere. I "designed" a six-pointed star pattern that I planned to make a die to cut cork. The idea was to have a cool pattern that interleaved. The day before I planned to make the die the Hexatraction cork pads came out and I shelved the project and bought two packages. Other than standing on them to test how they feel (good) I haven't had occasion to do anything with them.

I'd like to have a small CNC router to do woodwork and cork pads. One day.
 I tried to convince a company I buy rolls of cork from in Portugal to start making eco pads for surfboards and SUPs ages ago. They weren't interested. I have different densities and thickness. The lower density stuff is obviously softer and more comfortable but falls apart easier and dosnt last as long.
 My daughter loves her cork decked board.

Not a great shot. Main cork pad done. A little strip on the vertical where my foot rubs as well.
 I will paddle it some more and add bits where I need them.

I bought one of the Sainsmart routers to play around with and gave it to my grandson after i'd played around w bit. 269 bucks. I think they even have a cheaper one. Really good design, easy to build, easy to use. You can add a laser module for cutting and engraving for another 150 bux.
