Build your own hollow wood surfboard with a precision laser cut internal frame for a light and strong, perfect shape then add locally sourced Paulownia planking for a complete board.
The 7'0" Driftwood is as close as we get to that "potato chip" modern performance board as we can to with wood. It has the performance plan shape and foil of your favourite "potato chip" with an adequate amount of volume left in the nose and the rocker isn't crazy.
Driftwood series frame is designed to be built lighter in the nose with less glue and structure to remain lightweight. This means you can still "pull it around" at the top of a wave.
This 7'4" Chameleon is one of Brad Tucker's most successful shapes. It's a Funboard shape that we call an "Egg" shape that's a little gunny too. It is a good "core platform" that many have modified over the years so is has been nicknamed "The Chameleon" by some. Fun in the small surf and more fun in overhead conditions.
Driftwood Senior (8'0")
The 8'0" Driftwood Senior is the same basic shape as the 7'0" Driftwood (See 7'0" Driftwood description for more details) The regular 8'0" Driftwood was lengthened from the 7'0" Primarily in length alone. The Driftwood Senior was increased in both length and width making it a true "big guy" shortboard. The added width in particular ads lift on takeoff for those that need it.
Mini Mal (8'5")
The 8'5" Mini Mal is a perfect entry level surfboard in many ways. Performance wise it's a perfect beginner surfboard for kids and smaller sized adults. With good volume for it's size and low rocker it paddles easily for early takeoffs. For the expert surfer it is a super fun small wave "just messin' around and having fun" shape.
For the beginning surfboard builder the reasonable size and low rocker makes it one of the easiest to build fish-bone frames on the marker. Low rocker = less wood bending and complicated joinery.
