Builiding a Spoon
A lot of work is an understatement. Building a spoon takes several hard working days to be ready.
Nico shaped this one from a custom surfboard blank. He did a lot of adjustments and measurements since is also a difficult board to build.
The Spoon is a kneeboard originally invented by George Greenough in the late 60s. It’s suppose to be very flexible because its built mainly with fiberglass resin and fiberglass cloth with a long, narrow, flexible fin.
The ideia behind all this flex is that the board and the fin would slingshot going out of a turn on the face of the wave.
Known for the amount of displacement hull bottom, it is also a very small board. This one is 5 feet.
