i recently finished the recycling project and built the first board for my daughter out of an old fish surfboard i purchased back in 2008 in portugal. please find below a step by step documentary of the production process.
the dimensions are 4' x 18'' x 2 3/8'', nugget shape. because of security reasons i didn't insert fin plugs and went for a channel at the bottom. it comes with two leash plugs and can be used either as mini-surfboard or bodyboard.
ready to get wet in september at the atlantic coast.

another board was sold this week. marco from zurich visited me and also had a look in the shaping & glassing room to get introduced to the production process. he decided to go for the 5'11'' x 21 1/2'' x 2 3/4'' diamond tail. he's not new to surfing but the landlocked stick is his first personal board. have fun!
