regarding the nose and tail, i left it an inch thick, so that i won't have to re-strengthen it or sumthing. the bottom is flat, no concave or convex vee. the rail, i set it as fuller rail almost flat, too. heheheh. it's kinda experimental. im gonna shape a retro fish next and is planning to put a pvc pipe as stringer. heheheh. the most important thing is im having fun with shaping. hehehehhehehe.

7' x 22" x 3.5"
Not being funny here dude but aren't they a little odd dims for a 7' board? 22" is VERY wide for any length of board and at 3.5" wide....!!!!!! I would have thought at 7' in length something around the 20" x 2 7/8" mark would be more suitable if your a bigger guy and maybe 19 1/4" x 2 5/8" if you a little more standard. If you are worried about volume i would suggest going a little sleeker on the board dims and going for less nose rocker for easier takeoffs. I don't mean to offend anyway, just thought you might have gone a little bit LARGE! Good on ya for having the bottle to shape your own stick though mate.

Dave rastivich had a board that was polystyrene with a vacumed ply veneer and varnished.(easily available in the philipines) he seemed to surf it ok(joke). No epoxy.
Polystyrene doesnt have a good "memory" so u need to hold it with a stinger, or in a jig when u glass it. and dont leave it in the car.
Often with polystyrene you cant get a good finish before you glass it so u have to do a "bog" coat and smooth it.
The surftech style boards have a vacumed layer of divinacel between the foam and the glass, (not so available in the philipines, i think)
My experience with epoxy in the tropics hasnt been that good, cos the resin is sensitive to humidity, but i think special high humidity epoxy is available.
