I was recently cruising my favorite surf sites and ran across a really neat looking wood belly board. As a shaper, I'm not above taking inspiration from other designs. The shape is unusual, I think, because of the pin tail on such a short board. This one I found also had some neat turned down rails near the tail to act as little fins. Pretty cool. Of course I got all excited because I like belly boards, and ran down to the garage to see if there was anything lying around I could use to make one. Yes, there was! I cut down and reshaped an old 6 foot alaia that did not work too well. I wanted to do the turned down edges, but end up recycling some old bonzer-style fins I found in the bottom of the old fin box. Alot less work, and probably more effective. Maybe. I think it looks pretty cool. It's about 4'7" long and about 20" wide. We'll have to see how it works in the water!
