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.

Surf Contest June 16, Ocean Isle Beach

I wasn't going to enter this event, I had knee operation 12 days earlier to repair a Mensicus tear. Doctor said I was good to go, but still didn't want to put much strain on it. So I went just to surf few waves with Tom and watch local kids have fun. Waves were really small, side/offshore wind and high tide, and swell coming wrong direction. Also, all contests leave us longboarders to end of day. This time, since there were fewer than normal contestants, they ran our heat at 9:15...cool. This was my second time riding my new Evo Nose Rider woody. Tom road his Nose Rider foam.

Along with Tom was Jake Crocker and two other kids. So Tom with his usual bag of tricks, he pulled off couple of head stands and spinners. Tom took first, Jake took second and was pulling off some good turns and nose rides, and I took third, which was just fine.
