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.

Update 12/19/11 (evening)
To live is to die, we all share those two experiences. What makes us all different is the time in between. This poor bird was heading some where and ended up some where completely different.
You and your family have a great holiday season.

Update 12/19/11 (early morning)
From Marry Ellen:
Those of you living here, put this number in your cell phone under Bird Rescue: 910 294 2555 Mary Ellen.
Twice this year I called Mary Ellen to help with bird rescue. First time was few months ago with a Pelecan that looked like it had broken wings, there is a know fisherman and crew who routinely break Pelecan wings because they get too close to there nets. I truly hope some day I see them doing this, Tom and I will really take care of them.
Second time was today. Chelsea (our dog) and I went back down to let her run and for me to check out the surf. Almost at the end of Tubbs Inlet was a bird that wasn't moving. Chelsea ran up to it and the bird was not letting Chelsea near her: it was a Loon, in Winter plumage. Never realized how big that bird is, proably around 10 pounds. It seem uninjuried but I called Mary Ellen and we agreed to meet near Shallotte.
Now a 23 pound surfboard is easy to carry, a 10 pound Loon who has very sharp serrated beak is another animal all together. Very soft neck and body, kind of cool to hold something like that in your arms.
Well the critter is safe with Mary Ellen and we're waiting to hear it's prognosses.
First picture is on the beach, second is in my Volvo heading to meet Mary Ellen:
