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.

9'8" Nose Rider

Plan is for an 18 3/4" nose, 16 1/2" tail (tail block 8"), 24" wide, 3 1/4" thick. 5" nose rocker 3 3/4" tail rocker.  sort of old school rail foils. Little early to think that part through. Single fin...of course.

Center spar 2 5mm plywood. I use water based contact cement, better for the environment. Problem was getting the two pieces to have enough clamping pressure.so I run over this spar with my car. :)   


At this point it weights 15.5 pounds. I'm waiting for a shipment of Paulownia to help keep weight to around  21 pounds.
