Patterned after the 60's era boards that ruled Trestles in San Clemente CA its been updated with modern rails so it turns well and hugs the wave. We had us bigger guys in mind when we added this shape to our lineup. 3 1/4" thick and 22 3/4"wide its super floaty but you don't need gorilla arms to carry it. Single fin works great or add a set of sidebites for a great modern riding experience. Its best for riders up to 225 lbs. but heavier depending on your experience level. Its nose riding time!
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.
