Inside

I build wooden surfboards through a method that
takes advantage of the natural flexibility found in wood.

Layering

The rails are layered horizontally, parallel to the bottom surface of the board.

Rib

The board flexes more freely by layering the fibers and grain of the wood
from the deck, rails and bottom, all in the same direction.
My method of building results in surfboards with structural strength,
due to the thickness of the wood I use.

Blanks

Therefore, no fiberglass is required.
In order to increase the surface hardness of the board,
low viscosity epoxy resin is infused into the wood,
from its surface through to the xylem vessels in its interior.
After that, a protective coat of varnish is applied to the outer surface of the board,
while a final application of epoxy filters out harmful UV rays.
