Homemade a surfboard and tried to catch huge waves.

The biggest swell in 15 years just hit California. I found this neglected Bing Copeland longboard on offer up for $10. It was so far gone I almost used it for scrap foam, but then I had an idea. What if I reshaped the original board into a specific shape for catching big waves? 

I documented the whole process and finished the board the night before the historic waves arrived.
