No Step

Why drive when you can fly? I had a call today from a future customer from Rhode Island wanting to come by the shop, check out our boards and put down a deposit on a new 10′ Waterlog. 45 minutes later, he landed at a local landing strip just 4 miles from the shop and called for a ride. Got to be safer then driving through Boston.plane.jpg

New 6’0″ Fish on the Glassing Rack

Here are a couple photos of our new custom 6’0″ Fish that we’re building for a mystery customer right here in Maine. The natural colors in the wood really popped when we glassed the board. All the feedback on this board has been positive, so keep an eye on our board line. We may be making this shape available soon.

More Imagination!

Here are a couple photos of Carlos’s 10′ Waterlog. You can see in the photos that Carlos has gotten creative and built a strongback (similar to what a cedar strip kayak is built on) for his board to be built on. Using our 10′ Waterlog keel and frames, he used his own cedar strips to create a unique pattern. He also decided to cut the frames ends off and build his rails up from solid stock. Another sweet board Carlos.

Paddle Surfing: Wave of the Future?

If you’re looking for a new way to get out in the waves, build a paddle board. Better yet, ask us to build one for you. We can also recommend a place to get a custom wooden paddle made.
