New 9-8 Nova for Scott...

Man, I love "Pick-up Day", the day the customer first lays eyes on his/her new board; the smiles, the high-fives, brings out the kid in everyone. Its one of the things I like most about building surfboards. This day it was Scot and his new 9-8 Nova.

This Nova is 9'8" 17-1/2" x 23" x 14" x 3-1/8" It was glassed with double 6oz deck and single 6oz bottom, and finished clear, sanded gloss-coat, with black pinline. And just for a little pizzaz, we added a wooden tailblock. The 2+1 fin set-up adds to the versatility of this shape. I recommend 9-1/2" single-fin for waves 4ft or smaller, and 7-1/2" center fin with 3.7" side-bites for waves 5ft or larger.
