Longboard Hollow Wood Surfboard CNC Kit


Ever wanted to build your own hollow wood surfboard? Modelled on a board by the legendary Robert August, this kit makes a light, strong and perfectly shaped frame and comes with complete step-by-step instructions. Just add planking for a complete board.



If you want to build a perfect board, you have to start with a perfect frame! These kits are CNC cut to absolute precision, making your board building experience much more efficient and much less stressful. This kit makes a light, strong, perfectly shaped frame with complete step by step instructions.

Every detail of the original shape is built into the frame so that the finished board has the same length, width, thickness, rocker, rail profile and the bottom concave as those shaped by Robert himself. The board was a huge hit at the Sacred Craft show in Santa Cruz and now you can build your own.
