The original and most complete manual on building a hollow wood surfboard from scratch! It includes detailed plans for 4 different surfboards plus a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP). With variety like a Tom Blake style board, 1950's vintage Velzy or a Jacobs balsa longboard, you'll find something to your liking.
Plans for proven surfboard designs with templates for a longboard, fish, shortboard and funboard attached in PDF format. If these aren't quite right then included are the details on how to modify them to suit your own preferences. Make your board longer/shorter, wider/thinner, pintail, squash tail, fish, gun, whatever! You could even duplicate an existing board you love.
The manual starts you off in the right direction by showing you how to select the best wood, where to get it, and how to prepare it. It will take you through installing fin boxes and vents right through to how to glass your board.
A must for every aspiring board builder - makes a great gift or it will inspire you to get that project underway! Both experienced and first time builders will gain something from this 105 page manual. Every step is taken care of.
Important to Note
The boards created from this manual are different to the Hollow Wood Surfboard kits sold on this site.
This is a downloadable PDF file. The templates come in PDF format where you will print out and paste together. They require 6-11 sheets of paper depending on the size and shape of the required board.
