A Blank, Polyester Resin and Hardener, Paraffin,
three or four Layers of Glass cloth (slightly varies
depending on the length of the boards and strength of tissue),
sandpaper (fine to 600), disposable gloves, plugs for leash
and Finns, the Finns.
Tools list:
Electric planer, router, hand plane, angle grinder, hacksaw,
pencil, tape measure, ruler. Good Hope? Come now, let `s go.

First, the extent transferred to the Balnk. Standard points
for a reasonable Qutline are one-footed off the tail and one-footed off the nose.
The readiest point (center) is provided in the middle. The very smart to make a stencil.
This increases the Probability that both sides are identical to board at least 99 percent.

For the sawing Qutline you use best get a grobzahnigen foxtail.
Vertical sawing! Take your time and not too much of the blanks ...

The edges are cut at right angles to the boat underwater.
The angle is a prerequisite for a straight bottom shape.

The rocker and the Scoop signs. For this purpose you need a straight wooden bar.
Fussy and professionals build a Negativkurve. So they can control and over again,
if everything is right. In addition, you may have already discovered the dream
line for themselves.

The thickness is measured in the center of the blanks. Here is also the thickest point.
In other words, sitting here most of the volume of the boards.

It is time to straighten the ship underwater. That the same is possible hobel over end ... oh well planed. Concentration, please.

Depending on the application area will be formed with the bottom, in the example of a simple V.

So now you do not begrudge up here once nee brake.
Have a brake have a Kitkat.

The Deck is planed. Do this with an electric planer.
Caution, this thing is really greedy.
Who has not used it should rather work with a normal plane.

Now the edges are sanded. First, very roughly with the e-plane.
Develop with fine sandpaper the finer points.
While working in longitudinal direction.

Signs of fin position. Experience to be paying.
So take a quiet time before the Baord rod level.

Dimensions of the board and the names of the Shapers Leave purely on it.
Best with a thin pencil.

Again and again koontrolieren the surface of the board.
You can see the finished Baord each error everyone!

The fiberglass mat over the roll blank. Liked a bit more generous,
it remains slightly above for future repairs.

Now mix the resin and harder on.

The resin cast of the Blank and spread with a spatula after off.
Please do not spend a lot of pressure.

Plugs for the Finns and use the leash.
This goes best with a drill.

Now the board finefinishen that works best with 600 sandpaper. I wish you lots of fun and above all to build your own in-built surf boards.
