A walk around the bottom of a Bushranger Round Pin Gun model

A walk around the bottom of a Bushranger Round Pin Gun model. I finished shaping it yesterday from a Burford Blank. The Pre Shape was cut on Fitzy’s APS Shape 3D machine. @fitzycooly Dimensions are 7’0″ long, 191/2″ wide & 23/4″ thick. 39.9 Litres. Modern rocker with a single to Double Concave bottom & a tight Round Pin tail for good surf. Fins will be set up with Five sets of FCS 2 Plugs for a Thruster / Quad option. @fcs_surf The song playing in my shaping room is “Never Destination” from Pearl Jams new album Gigaton. It’s my current favourite song on the album. Last week my favourite was “Dance of the Clairvoyants”. Next week I’m sure it will be different again. @pearljam @riklove72 @surfboardempire @slimesboardstore @sashstocker @lowenshaper @1_da_shapes @rickrock1966 @montanapoolservice @rawsonsurfboard @darrenburford66 @burfordblanks #markrichardssurfboards #markrichardsshapes #markrichardsshaping #mrbushrangermodel #mrbushranger #mrbushrangerroundpin #mrbushrangerroundpinmodel #mrbushrangerroundpingun #mrbushrangerroundpingunmodel

A Bushranger Round Pin “step up” model, 6’4″ 193/4″wide & 25/8″ thick

A Bushranger Round Pin “step up” model, 6’4″ 193/4″wide & 25/8″ thick. This is a new model I have been working on for the past few months. Aimed at being a board model primarily for good surf. It is now available. The stock model comes with 5 sets of FCS 2 Plugs for a Tri / Quad option. There are a few finished ones being ridden by friends & the feedback has been positive so far. I did the color design on the tail using water based paint applied to foam with a small paintbrush.
