All wood has been alive. These boards have lived many different lives. Grow as a tree, get made or fabricated into something, serve a purpose the reborn as a beautiful surfboard to bring enjoyment both visually and technically. Wood is sourced from all different places, buildings and objects. In Canada wood is abundant. Old sheds, houses, barns, lift ramps, basically any source of wood that would be going to the dump or the burn pile. The wood has character and experiance that shows in the designs and layups of the boards.
Although these boards look incredible just hanging on a wall, their main purpose is to surf waves, and surf them well. From nose riding to barrel riding to ankle biters, these wooden bords can perform.
These boards are made with tensioned wooden skins over a wooden frame. They are hollow and weight about 1/3 more than a conventional foam fiberglass board. This translates into more buoyancy and usually thinner overall board thickness.
Our main focus is custom boards built exactly how our customers want them. Sitting down with a shaper and designing your own board is something every surfer should try to do at least once. For me, one on one sessions translating visions and ideas into surfboards is one of the most exciting parts of the process. Designing boards for certain applications, choosing from different stocks of recalimed wood, fine tuning exact dimensions are part of the process. Through a few stock models we have touched on many different styles of surfing.
