6’1″ Recycled Cedar
The latest shortboard to be completed at Ventana is this beautiful 6’1″ Thruster. The decks, fins, and tail block are made from recycled Cedar planks, and the whole thing is glassed with Entropy SuperSap 100/1000 Bio-resin. This board has a convex bottom in the nose fading to a Vee in the tail.
Weighing in at 9lbs 15oz, this is the lightest board we have built so far. One of the weight-saving features this board has is an “open coat” on the deck, meaning that there aren’t any filler or gloss coats on deck. The rough texture of the glass is both aesthetically pleasing, as well as being functional by saving weight and providing a bit of grip for the wax. The vent and leash cups are also Cedar, with maple blocks underneath as support. An abalone fish is inlayed in the tail block.
