Actually, if you look at other companies boards, it is fairly similar to many other boards but with a few tweaks. I added a few centimeters to the tail and I increased the sidecut radius to 10.5 meters. I know my first board will be heavy. One I get my processes down I'll hope to reduce it. That's why I wasn't going to make a split first.
So far I am on budget to make a board for less than the price of a factory split without hardware or skins. And that's including the price of the press. My time on the other hand has been quite an investment. But that's the fun of it. Its really a hobby.
