This is a solid balsa surfboard that I built. The wood that I bought was extremely light. I weighed the boards before gluing them together, and they all came out between 7 and 8 pounds per cubic foot. The dimensions on the board are as follows: 10’ long, 3” thick, and 21” wide. The tail block and fins are accented with mahogany. I finished it off with a single layer of 4 oz e-glass on the top and bottom. I used Resin Research epoxy. The final weight came out to 40 pounds. Needless to say it has a lot of glide on the wave. Out of my way, I’m coming through!
