5'11" Twinzer Egg


5'11"x20"x2 5/8" stringerless 2 1/2# eps/epoxy.
6+6 bottom and 4+6+6 deck.
Still weighs less than a poly board, and I can punch it without fear.

tail view...





















yellow pigmented deck w/pinline

















options...














bottom with resin swirl and pinline















Looking forward to testing this out in the next few weeks, if neptune sees fit(pretty please!)
I can't believe I was just going to sell it...

...strange outline for a 5 11...
¿pintail?

...lot of work with that glass schedule to avoid bubbles!, but with epoxi, you have plenty of time...

good work with the resin swirl, its difficult to obtain bright colors with epoxi...

...what s the fins brand?
its yours or to sale?

--other--
in the bike post I put other comment , may be you just read it, but I forget to mention that my Motorcycle have 60 years and still is on the road everyday!,and I live 1 block from the beach (imagine that..)
and I do not see any of the Japs bigger early ´80 s bikes on the road..they re almost all badly worn..and only ride a couple times per year...

yes, it is a bit odd, and its a bit more round than it shows in the photos. i made one like this in the bahamas a few years ago, and it worked well up to 2'OH, where it got just too fast to handle...i hope the pin will help with that.
anyway, it's an experiment, so...
i really liked the shots if your bike too, it looks like a super fun ride.
the jap bikes do tend to get beaten up a lot...just like the cars. i guess it comes down to ownership. i would say lets go for a ride sometime, but well...

hey rob,
i haven't shown to chip yet, but it is in te resources there.
thanks for stopping by. your site always stokes me.

regards.
