As a few of you know I have made a few boards and live in Southern California. Well every-time I get a cool board finished one of my Surfer Buddies buy it. I keep saying No, this is mine. However they offer me such a good price that we all know as woodworkers, ok it’s yours.

Back to the shop I go.


This one is a copy of a surf Board I had living in Hawaii that didn’t make it through the crash in the coral. Ooooppps.

Revenge Trucks, Sector 9 Wheels, Bearings are Reds & Grip is Lucid 2 part recycled glass.

Board is Indian Rosewood, Mahogany and Hard Maple

Thx for looking.

Hey Ken! You have been a busy dude in the shop. I love this board! Great job. I have been enjoying my boards but not as much as I would have liked. As you know, life gets busy and play time has to take a second seat.

Nice! If you really want to ride, just make one pig ugly, and your buds will leave that one to you. Sadly, even a scraggly horse can find a scraggly bush, as the saying goes. Maybe a 2”X4” with some steel wheels? I had one of those in the early ‘60s, and the leg scars to prove it.

Cool – - is it flat or does it have camber from front to back?

Built one with my youngest in 2012 which was a vac bag lamination over a form.
