Hi John, Great idea, that would look soo sexy!
BTW I don’t want to be messing with your design, but why don’t you try 145x42, basically a scaled up 140*40, just for some extra low end and drive…
Anyway, looking forward to the results.
I have ridden John’s (Kitesail) Woodie Surfboards here in the Gorge and they ride so much nicer than epoxy surfboards. His workmanship is truly an artform! I love my Mako 150 Wide and would love one in a similer size. Sign me up for a Woodie Mako!!
Hey thanks for the link! That is awesome, gotta love woodworking such a good vibe.
Design stages are nearing completion, need to locate inserts and fin placement.
Thinking about a (3-fin option at both ends) so you can ride with 2-small outside fins or the center fin; or combination of all three one or both sides.
I believe for 2010 OR is going to have different size center fins available.
In order to give the Crew a sense that John B knows what he’s doing and to build your anticipation of seeing this project completed please take a look at this link to see the effort and result of John’s last project, a hollow wooden kite surf board.
John’s got the skills to pull this off and we will be eagerly following his every move!
El Rudo -
I looked at the template (145 x 42) side by side with the 145 x 40, the 42cm just seemed a bit too wide, tho it might be great for a low-wind board and a lighter person. (so many combo’s would work well)

Sometimes you get ah-ha’s as you go along. I got one of those today while planning the tips of the board. It seems that this board is going to have some flex at the tips which should be good due to the thinness.
All glued and ready for sanding, shaping up real nice
