Wooden Board Day 2011 | Drift Surfing:

"From the solid block was carved over some 6 hours a 3D hollow surfboard that really needed very little hand finishing. The main body of the board was cored out with a honeycomb pattern to lighten the board and provide a tight platform for a 1.8mm 3ply of bamboo to be used as the only deck skin. No fibreglass to seal it, just gum turpentine and wax. Very technical, but in the end very simple. Light, definitely head turning and cutting edge. He has only ever made 6 boards and he had 4 of them on display. It will be very interesting to see where he goes with this and what the future holds."
