How to Shape & Make a Surfboard : How to Finish the Surfboard Outline


Hi this is Kimo Greene and I am here to teach
you how to shape a surfboard on behalf of Expert Village. Okay I am going to take the
outside excess of the foam off right up to the black line with my plainer. Then I will
hand sand it and fine tune it. After that I will get started shaping. What I am finishing up here is I started trimming
the outline out with my plainer, and then I fine tune it with a forty grit piece of
sandpaper. The board is perfectly symmetrical, so each side matches up. You take off any
little bumps, because if you do not take them out now, they will show up in your final shape,
bumps are not good. A lot of this I do not even have to look at, I can just feel it.

  1. Hi i was going to try to build a short board in my technology class and i was wondering if you could get EPS foam at a home depot and what sealant to use and where to get it?
