I am making a limited number of my original style foam boards with the custom Nose and Tail Blocks, Wood Fin, extra thick paulownia stringer, wood name plate, and resin Pin Lines.
All of the extra attention makes these boards very labour intensive! But in the long run it is well worth it. They are made the same way I made them when I first came to Australia in 1998. I took all the extra steps back then to make a reputation for myself (and it worked). 12 years later on many of the boards are still in great shape even though they have been surfed hard for their entire life.
