Here’s the bottom profile of the board which is going to be surfed by comedian¬†Mark Sampson¬†– who is also going to use it in his Africa Clockwise stand-up comedy show.

As you can see, the wood has a very distinctive, almost beetroot colour, with clear golden lines running from the nose to the tail of the board. It’s known as aromatic cedar and I reckon it’s going to look amazing once it is polished to a finish.

Stand by for more updates – this board is going on an epic journey when it’s finished and the next post will be about that.
