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.

9' 1" Longboard

Finished. Rails sanded and polished. Leash cording in place. :)  Board came out 9'3" x 23" x 2 7/8" and 21 pounds, perfect. 

Just started, 12-9-2016, a longboard. I'm thinking a concave nose, slight V in the back, single fin, maybe 2+1 fin set-up. I'd like to do a Rising Sun on this one, not certain. Sort of pointed nose and squash tail. Probably moderate rocker in the front and at the tail. More than a nose rider but less than one with continuous rocker. Rails will be a little fuller than a pinched rail, maybe 30/70 into 40/60 and 70/30 tail. I'm not too concerned about weight so probably around 21 pounds. That'll help on chest to head high and hard off-shore windy days.

The ribs shown here are just for placement of rails. They are from a 9'8" Bing like nose rider.
