The First Otter Wooden Surfboard Ten Years On
10 . 11 . 18
The first wooden surfboard that James made has just celebrated its tenth birthday, and it’s still going strong! Whiz is a 5’10” classic twin fin fish, constructed in western red cedar and named after James’ first dog. It was the precursor to our Fetch model that has a slightly wider tail and an updated rocker profile to name but a few improvements that James made as a result of surfing that first board. Whilst lessons have been learned and improvements made since those first few wooden surfboards, they are still good and surf-able and are living proof of wood’s longevity.
