Original Construction- Hand-built in York Maine just for you.
We've been hand building wooden surfboards since 2005. And since those very first boards we've stuck to the same set of values that got us into this; quality craftsmanship, state of the art designs, traditional methods, local sustainable woods and creative reduction in waste, and a dedication to building you the board of your dreams.
Our Original Construction utilizes 100% local (Maine grown), sustainably-managed cedar for planks and rails strips, all of which are milled to exacting standards, fitted and joined together to form the complex shapes of a surfboard. You can find more information on our materials here. We use traditional edge tools such as drawknives, handplanes, spokesaves and chisels to shape the final details. While we beleive no board is ever 'perfect', this original all wood construction represents our highest level of craftsmanship and we believe each board we build can, with proper care, last a lifetime with very few signs of wear and tear.
Since each Grain board is custom built for you especially, we will ask you about options such as glass-on fins and leash loops, wood patterns and stringer styles, custom artwork, and even modifications to our stock shapes to suit your surfing style. Modest customizations are provided at no extra cost, but some will add to the base prices shown.
If you’re ready to order, you can get into our queue right away with just an $800 deposit. Just select the board you want and it’ll be added to your cart. After you check out, we’ll give you a call to discuss details of the board. If you’d rather we communicate by email, just let us know. In either case, ALWAYS INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER AND EMAIL IN THE ORDER’S MEMO FIELD
Most boards are ready within three months. We’ll give you a projected delivery date when we talk to you, and email a receipt with the total cost of the board and the balance – which isn’t due until we’re ready to deliver. Your builder will be in touch with you when the board is started, and can send you photos of the progress at regular intervals.
Sales tax will be added to all boards delivered in Maine, and shipping quotes will be provided to you as the board nears completion.
