Finishing up

Finishing up on the 6'7" mini noserider. It has come together pretty well. I tried some new things in finishing it. I sanded off the glossy epoxy finish this time and used a clear acrylic spray as a finish coat. It looks OK, more of a satin finish...it feels better to the touch I think. This is an interesting size for this kind of board, I stepped the deck down, so there's good volume under the chest and the rails are thin enough to provide bite...can't wait to ride it, maybe this weekend.
