I have made 11 corkys now and I am totally confident with the process. 

 

The finless corky flex beautifully into the wave and hold in like my best alaias. Getting the flex right for the customer seems to be the most important element. I can finally improve upon the design of the Seaglass Project Albacore.

Shaping Classes
