The Nature of Grain

At Grain, we design, build, and help you build true wooden surfboards with the idea that they will never see the landfill. We've been leading the way, promoting wooden boards as a better alternative to whats become the environmentally-harmful industry norms. We employ the most advanced 3D modelling programs to create our shapes and then combine that with time-tested traditional building techniques to create a process that's truly enjoyable.  We strive to reduce our environmental impacts by using local sustainable materials, creative re-purposing  or recycling of waste and operational efficiency within our shop on every level. We believe that building and surfing a hand-built wooden surfboard is the ultimate experience a surfer can have. Our mission? To design and build surfboards that have more impact on your surfing and less impact on the environment.
