Hey magicseaweeders I've just knocked up a short portrait documentary (3 minutes) on a timber board builder who teaches people how to build their own boards from scratch. I'd be keen to hear what you guys think of it..

If you're interested in actually building a board then there's more info here. You can build whatever your dream board is in his workshop, or you can do it from your own shed interstate or overseas and he can send you frames, some materials, and instruction. He does the whole thing from harvesting the trees himself (fast growing, very sustainable if you're so inclined to ask). The workshop mentors you through the process, whether you've never picked up a tool before or you're a cabinet maker, barely surf, you shred, or you never will. Hopefully some of you are interested in learning to build a timber board, it's an epic skill for life.Anyway, I hope you like the video and get a bit of inspiration from it! Feel free to share it if you know someone who you think would like the video or would like to build a board

congrats! nice video!

great that more and more people make wooden boards these days. the experience of making a wooden surfboard and then surfing it is fantastic.

and doing it in a course makes it possible for people with no woodworking experience, workshop, tools, knowledge,...

wood is good!
best from cornwall!
