Thanks Seeks. The Manta-ray is a cool one, I had too narrow a piece of bone for this one. I would of liked to have the wings a little wider...oh well, next one!
Yup, SUP's are dominating line-ups, which is lame...they need to go to different breaks! But surf, or no surf...you'll have fun!...AND get a great work out. I picked mine up used for $650.

Those are sweet looking pieces there tiki surfah. I especially like the whale tail, it's a simple design yet it's form gives it a bold statement, to me it does anyway.

All that's left is the cording & lashing to complete the look. I tend to put the cord braiding off too because it's not that exciting as carving is. The lashing, not so bad because I know when that's complete, I'll have a complete piece. It looks harder but if you get down to it, it's actually pretty easy depending on what look you're going for. Good luck & post pics of the finished pieces, SOON!

Ha! You said "whale tail" and this was the first thing to come to mind:



And yeah, those SUP guys get on my nerves. It seems that a lot of them don't understand basic surf etiquette, like don't be a WAVE HOG. Just because you can paddle in deeper doesn't mean you should take EVERY SINGLE WAVE out there.

Here in Hawaii, if you drop in on them, they swing their paddle at you to knock you off. If your paddling out, & you get too close, they bop you on your head as a warning. First & last guy who did that to me was knocked out when he got to shore. I never did see him again. Do they do that anywhere else?

Hey pj, those literally looked more like tuna tails

Finally did a little bone work this weekend. Started a couple different things, even tried some shell (doesn't carve too well).
This tail just needs some magical lashing, that IrishCarver has been kind enough to show me.



Nice bone carves. Yep, that shell is pretty brittle huh? Seems like it would be pretty obvious, but a whole other thing once you put a dremmel to it!

Ha HA! Go away for a bit, and come back to some classic shtuff!! Yeah, those ARE Tuna tails alright. hee hee. Classic story there Cocoa-nuts. That sounds about right. Not so big on the "Hawaiian-Punch" around here, but definitely a locals only vibe at the best spots. We're so inundated with "tourons" here in the summer, and the waves are so small, that it don't matter. Someone bonks me on the head with a paddle...at my spot...Hawaiian-Punch time"!!! HA HA!
Big T's...I'm getting a little better at the shell, treating it like stone...doing it under water. Seems to help.
Aloha
