Overall making board no. 2 went really well but I did run into a few issues. The biggest of these was the air bubbles I got when doing my hot coat. I believe this was due to the “off gassing” that occurs with EPS foam (which I didn’t know about at the time). Another potential cause could be from dust particles on the board from not giving it a properly clean (yep, definitely guilty of that 🤦♂️). I ended up just doing another coat (using the squeegee) and despite a few aesthetic dimples, managed to get the board water tight 💦👌. Next time what I’ll do is clean the board properly (!), apply a “paste coat” with the squeegee, and then apply the hot coat as normal when the paste coat gels. This is what @entropyresins recommends anyway, so it’s my own fault for not having followed that in the first place! Cheers to @nebulasurfcraft and @rocketace_eco_surfboards for some help along the way! And of course @sanded_australia for that fine looking #flaxcloth 👌. #staystoked

The @lasportivana Bushido! Hands down the most comfortable and best performing trail running shoes I have owned! Can’t wait for spring to put these things to work!
I didn’t get much board time as i wanted to this trip, but have to look at every pitfall as an opportunity to find the good. And I did so with good vibes, new good friends and memories. #staystoked#jahpeak#jaypeak#embracetheunknown
I love early mornings when it feels like the rest of the world is still fast asleep, and you're the only one awake, and everything feels like it isn't really real, and you kind of forget about all your problems because for now it's just you, the world, and the sunrise 🌅 ✨
It was a grower 😏
just looked like white wash to me and I thought ducking this beast would be fine. Nope. Got contorted like a pretzel and left with some pain and a limp. Thanks @matt_castiglione_662 and @jrmaosi for the painful memories
