Retro Barrel Rider

By Taylor Nash

I just finished this sweet little retro barrel rider after being inspired by a Vimeo video. This is the first board I’ve shaped other than an Alaia. My buddy mike gave me some pointers.

First I got my shape and an outline for the pigment. I then laminated an orange bottom and decided to laminate this sexy fibrin on the top, glassed over the fabric. I also added a little light blue pin-stripe over the line where the fabric and pigment meet and a nice shine polish. Boom! The board allows for plenty of fin setups: from a quad to get you shacked at dunes to a single fin for some fun moseying around at Long Beach.
