Ocean Beach short board

Here's board number two. I used a different construction method for this one in hopes of further bringing down the weight. This board is 6'1, 19 1/2, 2 3/8. It should come in around six pounds after a very light glass job. I used 3mm paulownia ply for the skins rather than resawn planks and I hollowed out the rails. Instead of building the inside first and then warping on the rails, this time, I laminated the rails and fit the inside second. Better but not perfect. Here's a link to a photo set.
