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.
Once you've schooled yourself up on all the options we offer for the homebuilder, just select the product or products and the model you want to build. You can order your PlyBeam or HomeGrown Surfboard Kit, Board Plans, Framesets or Downloadable Study Plans, rough sawn and milled cedar planks, bead and cove strips and more. Click 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.
If you're overseas, be sure to check out Fyne Boat Kits in the UK or Denman Marine in Australia. Both of these great companies can set you up with our boards designs as a comple kit, frameset or plans using local materials.
