Eggy Redwood

7'10" x 21" x 1.5" thick and no rocker.  Made of redwood heart and sap wood with a ployurethane finish (no glass).  This plank rides pretty much like a regluar boards despite it's 25 pounds and minimum float.  It paddles good and I'm surprised at the drops I can make despite the dead flat rocker.  The fin is redwood, very thin and very flexy, hence the leash loop.  I don't think the fin would survive multiple beachings.  After a few sessions, I ended up hollowing out the deck.  This removed 3-4 pounds and lightened up the nose of the board considerable.
