I've been experimenting with different boards for awhile now. There are a bunch in my garage. They range from 7-10 foot. I've found the shorter I go, the better it's working out. I'm anxious to try out a 7' 4" board I picked up last week. It's a bit thinner (2 3/4" thick) and a little bit narrower (20 1/2"). My intention is to find my favorite and copy it. I think that building with cedar and balsa should keep the weight down. The rails will probably be pine. Anyways, making a board that works as well as my foam ones is going to be a challenge. I know it can be done and I'm looking forward to starting one in the next month or two.
