How can I make a masonite template for a longboard when the masonite sheets at Home Depot are only 8' long?

If your board is over 8' long and you need to make a two-sided 'spin' or 'flip' template, you simply draw the nose half of the board on one side of the template, and the tail half of the board on the other side. Just make sure that you mark stringer points on both ends and top/bottom of the template to mark the point where you will place the template down on the stringer when you trace your outline on the surfboard blank.
