Kualoa #3: The Lotus

This third “Kualoa” model (the first here, the second here) rolled out of the shop today. It was for a repeat customer – a buddy who had the original “malasada” shaped for his son, now getting an elegant longboard for his daughter.

She wanted light wood with darker wood rails; I ended up sourcing some wood-print cloth fabric that I glassed right in, and painted the rails for the darker wood look. Pinlines set off the deck nicely. For the bottom, and old-school military slash with the EGA, along with the FSU logo (they are hardcore ‘Noles).

9’0” x 22 3/4”, single concave in the nose and double/vee out the tail. 2+1 fin setup.
