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.

How strong is a hollow wood surfboard?
We are often asked "How strong is it?". Our beach is really great, wooden walk for public access and best part is they have railings. So while checking out the surf, I'll put my longboard across the railings and sit, watching waves. Tom freaks out..."Won't it breat?" We I haven't broken one yet and certainly wouldn't try this with a foam board.
Not only do we sit on our boards we stand behind them. If you don't like it after 30 days, just give it back.
Here's a short video about board strenght. Oh and don't think they are tanks. This 9'5" shown here is 22 pounds and that Fish is 14 pounds.
