This board is a noseriding animal! We looked at what some of the best nose riders on the
planet are riding and we put those factors into a board you can build for yourself. This board
was patterned after the board that carries the name of one of the greats. We can't say his
name out of respect but suffice it to say he would feel right at home riding this board. We're
just calling it the "9'0" Longboard"
This board has tucked under 60/40 rails that get a little harder at the tail. The result is a ride
like the classic boards but with great turning capabilities. Much of the boards volume is near the nose giving it great nose riding capabilities. You can install anywhere from one to five fins that are either boxed or glassed on (we like the feel of a single swooped fin). Deck and nose blocks can be added to add style.
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.
