Aptly named to represent where Grain began, the Root continues to be one of our most popular boards. This classic design is perfect for knee-to-head-high beach breaks because of its moderate rocker, down rails throughout and a slightly hollow nose. We’ve come far, but the Root is still a dominant classic.
Pretty simple origin, yet somehow today feels a bit prescient. As one of our earliest designs - though it's been through a series of refinements - we couldn't have known that Grain would be looking back to The Root with such fond nostalgia.
kits & plans
Kits are for the independent builders, the ones with a garage full of space and a knack for following instructions. Homegrown Wood, Paper and Booster are the three main types of board building kits. Match one of our many board designs with a kit of your choice and construct a surfboard in the comfort of your own home.
