Back in 1969 the Vietnam war was going strong, man had landed on the moon, hippies and flower powerwere the rage - and surfboards were getting shorter! The Spherical Revolver was one of the best transitional boards from that era. It was short (by longboard standards) and abandoned nose riding for speed and maneuverability. Traditional longboard shapes were being replaced by smaller spherical-shape boards that let you charge a wave instead of cruising it. It changed the way we surfed!
Fast forward to the present and we've come full circle. Longboards are back and people are loving the ride - but you just can't deny the fun of a shorter board. We call our version of this iconic board simply the "Spherical". The Spherical is all about fun and performance and having one in your quiver will mean you are ready for any swell conditions. As with all our plans, the templates are full size for the ribs and spar and the 78 page instruction manual shows every step of the build. We pride ourselves on our customer service so we are always here to answer questionsor and give advice.
Our instructions were first released in 2005 and have gone through many updates and revisions since then. As a registered buyer you'll get updates free for life. We guide you from selecting the wood to glassing the board and everything in between. There are 78 pages with over 200 illustrations currently. We know there are lots of sites showing wood surfboard builds but you wouldn't buy a new car and say "I'll just use the manual from my old car" would you? Our instructions were written for our plans and are the best in the industry.
