Rosa asked me the other day to make her a shortboard. Apparently she's over longboarding, at least when there is waves. She likes the workout she gets when riding little ones and is more interested in "Power Surfing". Knowing that the typical shortboard (modern) was going too far the other direction, I made her this 80's winged, beak nose thruster. The template I got from Jim Phillips, which was what he was riding in the 80's when he won the U.S. Open. Here's a pic, I had just finished up with my planer and started to sand.
