Ordinarily, it takes a few weeks for us to work our way through the various stages in constructing a wooden surfboard, as we usually have several on the go at any one time in various stages of construction. But back at the end of August we held a “Build-Your-Own” workshop week and watched as two surfboards grew on their trestles right before our eyes over the course of just five days. What started off as a stack of ribs, rail strips and planking on Monday morning had, by Friday afternoon, turned into two finished surfboards ready to be taken off to the laminator’s.
