Our Promise To You
My Environmental Promise: I use Forest Stewardship Council certified woods or woods salvaged from downed trees. All boards are glassed with epoxy resin which is cleaner for our environment and emits 50-75% less Volatile Organic Compounds than polyester resin. In my shop I have moderate ventilation and no need for a mask when glassing. Epoxy is lighter and stronger than polyester. My wood boards are nearly indestructible and should last a lifetime. Each board is quality crafted for strength, durability and concern for our environment.
My Satisfaction Promise: Ride your board for 30 days. If you don't like it, return it.

If your intention is to surf it, I will live the wax on her. If she's a wall hanger (about half of what I make goes up on a wall) I'll get her cleaned and run a buffer over her.

|Center spar 2 5mm plywood. I use water based contact cement, better for the environment. Problem was getting the two pieces to have enough clamping pressure.so I run over this spar with my car. :)|
|At this point it weights 15.5 pounds. I'm waiting for a shipment of Paulownia to help keep weight to around 21 pounds.|

Just might head down to this event in October. I'll bring extra boards. Meet fellow wood board builders including Dennis Hansen, Dirty Crow Surfboards and maybe Tom Allen from Tradition Surfboards, and myself.

If you think you can out swim one, well maybe you can. The reality is probably not and children are easily over powered by rip currents. The issues seems to be they feel protected while holding on to a boogy board, they are not. Or they know how to swim. Ocean swimming is completely different animal.
1. Always keep an eye on your children. Know where they are at all times.
2. Boogy boards are unsafe insurance.
3. If you're not from around here and don't know what a rip tide/current looks like, as a local. Hit up the guy/gal on that red ATV doing beach patrol.
4. There are NO lifeguards at Sunset Beach or Ocean Isle Beach.
5. Take two minutes and read the posted sign at SB boardwalks about rip tides.
