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.

Tom's working on a 5'8" short board

All the ribs are perfectly at 90 degrees to spar. Tom's putting a good front rocker to it and overall profile is short board, high performance. More pics as he progresses.

Often we are asked, "How strong are wood boards." They go far beyond foam. The only strength in foam boards is a wood stringer and even then it is under huge vertical loading and can fail, yes mostly in short boards but long boards are not immune to load failure. Here Tom is using tiles to load spar and ribs for mating to bottom deck. This kind of construction technique allows for better load distribution over a much larger area than foam.
