dude, that is sweet! one question I did not read about in the article is how did you build in the rocker? did you bend it or lay it all flat and cut and shape it?

Thanks guys, ref the rocker... I built up the nose with foam cut from the sides and then simply carved the nose profile from that. Another thing I did was create a rib around the rear of the board to give the wave/hole something to grab onto and aid in it being retentive on smaller features. Seems to work.
