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.

Shaping a 9'9" Nose Rider

Best part of wood board building is shaping. Dan is using a very sharp Jack plane, nice music and sweet curls peeling off. I guess this kind of feeling comes with foam boards, except all one has to do is buy a blank. Some how, saw dust and curls trump white foam all over the place and electric planner noise.
