So I needed a project to take my mind off of schoolwork while at college. A few of my buddies are surfers, and were making boards, so I decided to make a windsurfer. We designed them in AutoCad, and printed out full size plans. I based my board design on the Naish Global, which is supposedly a good all around board. I'm almost done shaping the foam core, and should be glassing the board soon. I have access to an old longboard windsurfer back home, which I'll try to learn on. The one I'm making is not a beginner board, but it has plenty volume (110 liters) to support my 135 lb self. Any thoughts? In shaping the board, I keep seeing hints of International Canoe, especially in the tail, which really resembles an IC stern. I've always wanted to take up windsurfing... the simplicity, coupled with the speed is awesome. I'll post pics soon.
