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.

Helping a friend

I'm selling off couple of board, just sold one yesterday, for a friend who is going through a nasty divorce. He's a great father to his kids and would do anything to make them happy...she's the one who is causing problems. Anyway, I'm selling off the following a very good prices. Both for $850 each.

Hollow wood surfboard. This is 9'6" x 23", with concave nose and slight V at tail. The rails are very pinched tad bit more than can be had on foam boards. Thin rails means a thinner board that is more sensitive, i.e. your feet are closer to the water and the leverage situation is much better than a thick one. A thick board means your feet are farther away from the bottom of the board making it more difficult to turn. This board is very easy to turn and accelerates very well. It will not loose speed as would 50/50 or thick egg rails. It is less sticky than fuller rails. The tail rocker is 4.5" and nose is 2.5". The tail has a reverse rail foil, in stead of hard flat rear rocker, this one has more like 30/70, an up turned rail. This, combined with tail rocker, helps lift the nose. This board takes about more time to construct, but is well worth that extra work. This is my daily rider, finished it last year October 5th....meaning it is used. I can remove the wax and clean it up real pretty or whatever..your call. Sold w/o fin since every board I've sold with a fin, was replaced with a favorite of it's new owner. My fin of choice is a Bing 10 1/2" Hatchet.
This 9'10" has beautifully book match Poplar  wood, it's 23 1/2" wide and 3 1/2" thick. Great board for our beaches. Rails are turned down with flat bottom for planning and pushing through sections. Stable and light underfoot.
