This surfboard kit is made up of the timber needed to shape a chambered premium Paulownia surfboard. All timber pieces are hand selected, and milled to 2″ x 4″ and are ready to be glued and shaped. This timber is top of the range, high grade Paulownia which will give you a beautiful finished surfboard. Standard width is 20″ wide.
Shaping a solid wooden surfboard is simple and easy. It also requires no fiberglass, just a sealer coat of resin or varnish. You can expect to make a strong board that will last you a lifetime and depending on your chambering technique, you will be able to get it down to a weight similar to that of a regular foam board.
Only basic tools are needed to shape your board – jigsaw, planer, sander and clamps. You can use hand tools, however it will obviously take a lot longer to finish. These tools can be picked up cheaply if you don’t already own them.
What is included – 1st grade 2″ x 4″ rough sawn Paulownia timber. Includes 10 pieces which will enable you to build a board that is 20″ wide.
What you need to supply – clamps, shaping tools, glue, leash plug and vent (you can find the glue, plug and vent on our site).
The maximum rocker of your board will be 4″. Basic step by step instructions on how to make a chambered wooden surfboard can be found here.
