Complete plans and instructions for building a modern, hollow wooden surfboard. Detailed plans for 4 different surfboards plus a

existing surfboard. We also loaded it up with details on things like how to glass your board, how to install a fin and box, how to make
and install a vent and a whole section on selecting the best wood, where to get it, and how to prepare it.

"The best advice I can give you is to get in touch with Jack Young (I have
cc'd him in on this email). He has produced a really excellent book on
making a hollow wood surfboard and I would seriously recommend that
you buy it if you're going to proceed with your project. At $29.99 it is
worth every penny - it has step by step instructions and he'll email it to
you so you get it straight away."  Patrick Burnett
