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.

 Just started this board. Found some awesome Western Cedar at Anchor Hardwoods in Wilmington, NC. Very nice people and browsing is encouraged. They will also surface your wood at no charge. Great people.

Tommy Reilly

Tommy came to Tom Allen just after Blind Dog tossed out its first woodie. Tommy wanted to build a 9'8" long board for his school senior project. His project came out rather good, considering it was his first wood board. It needed some reworking and Tom took it back and swapped it for one Tom had just finished one of our traditional 9'8" longboards, around 3.5" nose and 3" tail rocker. Not a hard core nose rider. Well Tom proved the first time he road one our woodies, 'it doesn't need to be a nose rider to be nose ridden. Here are pictures from last week up at Bald Head Island, NC.
