Heading to Hawaii

Here's the latest board out of the new Grain shop. It's a 9' single fin with a fin box, and we're pretty psyched on how it came out. The material we used is a blend of Northern White and Western Red Cedar, and we glassed the board with lightweight 4 ounce cloth and epoxy resin. It weighs 20 pounds which is the lightest 9' we've made to date, mostly due to the increase of white cedar which is substantially lighter then red.

  1. 20 Pounds! Holy Moly, even I could carry that, put it on the car and drive to the Oregon coast to ride it. No great white would bite into such a work of art…

  2. 20 Pounds! that’s more than my 2 year old black lab! Kinda heavy don’t you think…I mean for a 9 footer

  3. Actually 20 pounds isn’t bad for a wooden board. We have a 9′ foam WRV and it weighs 18 pounds, so actually I think 20 pounds is pretty reasonable. The extra 2 pounds will help drive you down the line faster anyway.
