A lot of people ask me how our boards are made and how long it takes. My answer is usually that the surfboard is built around a frame and that it takes a fair bit of time and effort. Knowing what goes into each board, this always feels like an inadequate response. Pictures would be the best way to convey the process, but somehow I’ve always struggled to systematically fit photographs into the building of a board. Until now.
The board being built in this gallery is a 9’6″ longboard, ordered by the customer as a birthday gift. I started this board a week ago and I’ve been taking pictures and posting them to the gallery every day. It’s early days yet and I’ll continue to post pictures to this photo gallery page until the board is finished.
