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.

Can a Hollow Wood Surfboard Be Competitive?

Last year I made six short boards, 6'6" for grandkids and daughter Kim. Some how I ended up making two too many. Understand, I'm way not a short boarder, long boards are my style, so keeping one for myself would not work. But I knew someone who is an up and coming short boarder: Chris Prevatte. Chris is the owner of Professional at Core and More Fitness of Shallotte (NC). tps://www.facebook.com/chris.prevatte.1

Here is what this board looks like: http://www.blinddogsurfboards.com/2015/11/two-boards-for-christmas.html

I gave one to Chris with one condition:  "Ride the epoxy off it!" He managed to take First in an ESA event - Mens Short Board and First in Mens Short Board at Shedfest Contest, Carolina Beach. Congradulations Chris on some good riding!
