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.

Mini-Malibu 8' 5" For Sale $930

Just finished.  Weight is 17.5 pounds. Leash is handled through fin box, I just like that way, clean and very strong. Side bites are Pro-Box with adjustable inserts for changing cant angle. Right now it is about 6 degrees, which should keep it loose but stable. That system can take Pro-Box fins and FCS, nice way to keep choices flexible. Center fin shown just for placement,  that was cheap and is not going with this board, it is the one I use for fin box setups.



                      Been tough few weeks. Finally getting time to finish couple of boards. I did a nice nose piece, then decided I didn't like it, sawed it off and did another one. Talked with folks at Pro-Box to have them help with 2+1 fin layout. Nice folks. I've now finished rough sanding with 80 grit and to 100 grit before glassing. I can taste epoxy in my coffee ;)

That black fin is just for measurements, never used it, was cheap and I needed something to use as gluing in guide for fin FCS fin boxes.
