Brian Szymanski shaping EJ’s new 14′ Prototype

14' Racing board for EJ used in Tahoe

Starboard Proto 14'

I’ve been in my shaping room for the weekend but managed to put some time in the water as well. Here is a slide show of some pics of the new Starboard prototype that EJ is going to be racing in Tahoe.

One thing I’ve figured out through experience is that hot weather makes lighter boards, so I’ve worked hard to get this together this weekend. I used only one layer of carbon on each side with custom laps and patches to keep in comp light. I really am interested in seeing how this runs downwind, because I’ve have a feeling we got a magic one.
Living in Cardiff is awesome because I get to do resin work then go for a SUP at Cardiff Reef, add another  layer and get back in the water – and again! In fact now that my family is out of town for a few days I’ve getting in three sessions a day. Board building is supposed to be fun after all, and this is especially true when you’re building boards for guys like EJ!

Paddle On!
