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.

A Raising Sun

Fin by Dan.

I wish I could say the wood was most expensive part of this fin...it was not. My time, at $2.00 an hour, was most expensive part. I needed a block of glass/epoxy to use for inside the fin box. It took about 70 sheets of glass, some weights and good amount of epoxy. I've got a block for a few more fins. Its looking good, not finished, just has one layer of glass and some filler for beading. Needs another layer and some shaping to make it just right.
