My Bat Tail

My Bat Tail. It’s 6’1″ long, 20 1/4″ wide & 25/8″ thick. I shaped it from a pre-shape of one of my “Lone Ranger” models making some slight adjustments to the outline narrowing the nose & tail. It’s just back from the glasser’s & it’s the board I posted a few weeks ago with pictures of the target design I did on the deck. The bottom has a subtle single concave leading into a deep double “Bonzer” concave inspired by the Campbell Brothers. I hand painted the 3 colors following the contours of the Bonzer concave’s. Fin set up is thruster using FCS 2 plugs. @bonzer_front @campbellbros @campbellbros_ hawaii @fcs_surf @robertwilson12345 @pearljam #markrichardssurfboards #mrbattailmodel #mrbonzer #mrbonzerbatail #mrbonzerbattailmodel #mrlonerangermodel #mrloneranger @mayhemb3_mattbiolos @rawsonsurfboard @burfordblanks @quiksilver

Some recent shaping action

Some recent shaping action. The bottom is virtually finished. The rocker is cut in & the foam has been fine sanded. In this vision I’m using a Sureform to shape in some Bonzer Concave’s. Years ago in Hawaii Pat Rawson showed me how to do this process with a small Makita grinder which is a lot quicker than the Sureform. The Bonzer’s start shallow & increase in depth towards the tail. Nothing is measured in this process, it’s all by eye & feel. What looks right is usually more important than trying to hand shape to a bunch of numbers. @campbellbros @bonzer_front @campbellbros_hawaii @rawsonsurfboard #markrichardssurfboards #mrbonzer #mrbonzerbattailmodel #mrbattailmodel @pearljam @burfordblanks @mayhemb3_mattbiolos

The bottom has a subtle single concave leading into a deep double “Bonzer” concave inspired by the Campbell Brothers. Tim did the multi color design on the deck with water based paint & he did an awesome job for his first attempt, Mono sprayed the black rail. Fin set up is thruster using FCS 2 plugs. @bonzer_front @campbellbros @campbellbros_ hawaii @timdickson @slimes_surf_skate @kakek_slime @fcs_surf @markmonostewart2481 @christianchapmanartist #markrichardssurfboards #mrbonzer #mrbonzerbattailmodel #mrbonzerbatail #mrbattailmodel
