The finished “Sting” model for Hutchison Builders who are based on the Goldy

The finished “Sting” model for Hutchison Builders who are based on the Goldy. Mono did the sprays. On the deck a black rail with a yellow insert. A red fade followed by a black fade have been blushed over the top of the yellow for a “burnt” look effect. Scroll for a photo of the black bottom. @markmonostewart2481 #mrretrosinglefin #mrsinglefin #markrichardssurfboards #psmglassing #mrretrostingmodel #mrretrosting #mrstingmodel

Mick at PSM Glassing laminating the bottom of a “Sting” model

Mick at PSM Glassing laminating the bottom of a “Sting” model. This board was specially made for Hutchison Builders who are based on the Goldy. Mono did the spray, the deck has a yellow insert with a red fade & the rail is black. As you can see the bottom is black. Quite a challenge in the glassing, sanding, gloss coating & polishing processes to get it perfect. But an even bigger challenge will be taking it to the beach & trying to protect it from the Goldy’s long hot summer weather. #psmglassing #markrichardssurfboards #mrsinglefin #mrretrosinglefin #mrstingmodel #mrretrostingmodel

A custom “Sting” model for Chris Athas

A custom “Sting” model for Chris Athas. It’s 6’8″ long. This one has a “Step” in the bottom which we usually don’t do on stock boards as it just creates a straight line weak point across the bottom making it more likely to break in half. Ben Aipa from Hawaii is the inventor of the Sting design & Ben made me some epic boards during the mid 1970’s. They all had Steps & I managed to break most of them. The design reason for the Step was to drop the rail rocker line from the Sting back to the Swallow tips increasing the tail lift without shaping extra curve / rocker into the back third of the board to get the same amount of tail lift. @chris_athas @dean_sho2 @surfectionbyron @aipasurf @dukeaipa #markrichardssurfboards #mrretrosinglefin #mrstingmodel #psmglassing #mrsting #markrichardsstingmodel #benaipa
