PineKnot Surfboards is the work of one man in his basement in New Jersey. Entering Randy Budd's workshop one gets the sense of a mad scientist in his laboratory. Always experimenting with new shapes he’s crafted everything from alaia’s to handplanes to planning hulls, using mostly reclaimed wood. One of the most generous people we have met, Randy offered roadside help to me (while on the East Coast Ramble) if I was anywhere within 100 miles of Randy’s home. As it turned out, the Pug broke down on the NJ turnpike. Randy got there before the tow truck and brought me home for lunch!
