This surboard has been a longtime coming, and is actually the reason I got into woodworking. I have been drooling over the idea of having a hollow cedar surfboard for a long time, but the price tag of buying one has always kept me away. With the help of the mennonite sawmill down the road, I was able to build this board from start to finish (including fiberglass) for under $100. I spent about 140 hours on the project. I don’t have much time to spare, so I started in October 2008, and whittled away at it until just 3 weeks ago.
It is 7’6” long and 21” wide and 3” thick at it’s thickest point. I took it out to Fernandina Beach FL, where I surf, and it surfed like the board of my dreams.
