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.

Rules of Surfing.

This is from the good folks at www.TotalSurfingFitness.com Thanks for the posting.

While Sunset Beach, NC is usually a handful of locals who look out for each other and respect the following rules. It doesn't hurt to think about how we should  behave towards each other while surfing - well heck in our daily lives on land as well. I think the most important rule is to treat others as you would want to be treated. There is always a better wave coming.

Tropical Storm/Hurricane Andrew @ Sunset Beach, NC July 3, 2014

Awesome surf today. Set waves good 10' and thick. Strong off-shore wind blowing tops of any wave higher than waist high. I couldn't make it down, even if I did, probably would not have gone out, just too much for me, but Tom Allen (Blind Dog Surfboards and Tradition Surfboards) was out all day. Here are late afternoon pictures. Last two are Brad, Fraser, and Tom, and Tom facing the Dragon.
