MellowWave Surfboards  
This longboard is something a bit different! The idea had been in my mind for some time, the only person that would have any sort of clue to what I was on about was Steve James (the shaper) Taking a normal blank with the bonus of a redwood stringer, Steve went on the mission of all missions and produced what he calls "The Black Betty" which is even more than I expected!
I wanted the centre to look like balsa inserts with 5 stringers in total which have all been detailed in paint to look like the real thing...
Below: Once paint is perfect on goes the gloss coat
Below the finished surfboard: 9'2" x 22 1/2" x 3" mixing the old with the new, the fins were designed by my 4 1/2 year old son, I'm told I'm at the bottom of the centre fin!

Thanks to Steve for this work of art it should really be on a wall somewhere and thanks to me for coming up with the idea!!
