First off, pardon the bad english, ist not my native language.
Now, Ive had some surf lessons, mostley SUP, and i really got to like it, hoping to get better, and start a new hobby for miself, i decided to build my own board. But... I know notning about shapes, length or the weight of the board. Im 14 yr's. 5'9 (175 cm) and weigh around 62 kg. Ive decided to build it in polystyrene, covered in clingfilm, and then fiberglass (the Polyester resins witch harden the fiberglass melts the polystyrene, so it has to be covered in something).
Here in Denmark we rarely have really big waves, i think the averagen would be something like 1 meter/3 feet, measured from the seasurface.
So im basically asking, what shape/size should my board be (i kinda want it semishort), and does my plan sound alright to you folks?
Kindly regards, Villum.
