Putting the Experience Back in Your Hands

For too many years, surfers have felt barred from the act of creating their own boards.  The industry that grew up around surfing after the 1950's (and the industrialized materials brought with it) made it seem like this once common practice - part of every surfer's experience at one time - was out of reach. We disagree. So we've found a bunch of ways that we can help you build your own at home.

We look at each DIY product that we offer as a doorway to the experience, each one offering you a different skill level where to cut in. The experience ultimately of owning and surfing a beautiful, functional, sustainable true wooden surfboard that you'll want to keep around forever.

If you live outside the U.S. we've also got you covered. Across Europe, you can get Grain Surfboards' HomeGrown kits, marine-ply framesets and paper plans directly from our British friends at Fyne Boat Kits. And now in Australia and New Zealand, our kits and supplies are available through Denman Marine. Same Grain quality, same designs, only with locally sourced woods. 

Once you've schooled yourself up on all the options we offer for the homebuilder, just head over to our online store to select the product or products and the model you want to build. You can order your HomeGrown Kit, Paper Plans, Framesets or Dowloadable Study Plans, rough sawn and milled cedar planks, bead and cove strips and more from there. Cick here for some free downloadable resources to help you get along. Building board number two (or twelve)? Check out our 'Build Your Quiver' plan and save money on your next build.
