OK no photos but I completed my San O.
The varnish finish is OK nothing amazing but it seems sound.
Today I took it out on a local small secret Loch. The conditions were really glassy. I am really pleased with the speed of the board. My older foam core boards are much slower. The wind was still but I managed to paddle so it felt as if there was a light wind on my face.
I always find knee paddling a problem and usually paddle prone but this boad should help me to crack that.
I cant wait to take it to the sea and hope to test it on runs this weekend.
