2006 Mair Surfboards 12' 0" x 9 3/4" x 22 1/2" x 9" x 3 5/8" The Hanalei Spear
This is a hollow balsa gun that I shaped for Felipe Pomar to ride large Hanalei. It was shaped from a hollow balsa blank which is different than a chambered blank. The blank is made from sheets of balsa on the top and bottom with strips bent around the edges for the rails, the strings set the rocker and profile.
Was a really fun board to shape. It is glassed with a 4 oz. bottom and a 6 oz. deck with a 9 1/2" glassed on fin!
Something about a board like this that really touches you, there is some magic in that wood.
