"The Dude" Timber Board

Being full of creative energy and with plenty of time to kill, the Dude has commenced his prototype of a timber board being made from western red cedar. Photos show the skeletal frame of the the prototype 6' 8" retro fish. The Dude reports that it will be coated with epoxy and have a breathing hole. It is likely to weigh slighly more than a standard foam based board.
The Oldfartsurfer will keep you posted on the development and sea trials. Negotiations are under way for the board to be marketed under the Old Farts Surf Co. label.
Desgin expert Macho reckons its got a lot of rocker so we are interested in finding out how it performs in the sea trials.
