You may have noticed the phrase “going off to the laminators” appear on this blog in the past. When Otter Surfboards moved from the farm into our current premises at Krowji, the decision was made to outsource the final step in building our surfboards: the laminating. James used to glass all of the surfboards that he built himself, however building hollow, skin and frame wooden surfboards and laminating surfboards are two different skill sets and James wanted to concentrate on the construction and shaping of wooden surfboards. We believe that we produce a top end product, and we wanted to ensure that every step in the production process was carried out by the very best craftsmen. So we called upon the gents up the coast at Diplock Phoenix.
