only for surfing

Well now that the attraction power of  surf kayaks has been  proved without a doubt, I am going to build myself one. I just received the plans for the Matunuck, the surf kayak designed by Nick Shade of Guillemot Kayaks, today. They are sold  by CLC and come with a building manual.

The technique is stitch and glue, which I have not yet used , but it looks pretty straightforward. .
Now I just have to do some research to find out which colours are the most attractive and helpful in attraction
If there is anyone out there who has built and surfed the Matunuck, I would appreciate some feedback as to how it performs from the write up and pictures it looks like a lot of fun.

Today the surf was mild and well ordered after the stormy seas of the past few days and we sure had a lot of fun .

Steve, where do you store all your boats?

right, seem to be running out of space, may have to buy a bigger house. 3 in my garage hanging from the roof and one at the kayak club. luckily this next one is small.
