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.

6'0" Swallow Tail - World's Frist With QR Code

Board owner wanted a copy of his foam short board. Told him w/o his old board this was going to be difficult at best. He sent a very accurate drawing and profiles from three ribs. The drawing was perfect as were the ribs. I was able to draft out on shop floor it's profile and mock up the other ribs with the three rib drawings he provided.

This board has been a challenge. I needed 4.75" nose rocker in the span of about 20". As much as Cedar likes to bend it was not that easy. More pictures forthcoming.

Worlds First: I've been looking for a way to create a historical record for our boards, something that will last. My wife and I were talking about it and she, a quilter, said she has seen an article about adding QR code to quilts. EUREKA! So this is, to my knowledge and Google searching, the first surfboard with a QR code.

Rough shape

Objective is to get the cut dead center
There has to be a better way

I think a worlds first!
