Factory

Update

Note: The factory construction is finished!
Now we just need to start cleaning out the construction materials, tools, and work benches; then start installing all the surfboard building tools in the shop. Of course this will take a while, but we hope progress will start going faster than it has in the past.

Of course there are some other things to build also. We also need to finish building a trailer for transporting materials for the factory, and build surfboard racks to carry finished boards to local surf shops.
There is still much more work to do, but at least we feel we are on the downhill side now!

Factory

Update

Note: A recent conversation with a customer really made me start thinking about this, so here goes.
It seems some of the major manufacturers depend on CNC Cookie Cutters to churn out hundreds of clones of one board over and over again. A different model name for every small change in outline or rocker. True, this business is all about every board being exactly the same when selling to customers, that way you know what you are getting. I understand that.

But whatever happened to the personality of a board? The artistic and expressionistic side of surfing. Would you buy a car if the only colors available were red or blue?

Our philosophy is a little different. We offer you a general group of shapes and try to give you as many options as possible to customize a board to you! I don't understand how people can accept anything less than exactly what you want. - A shaper that listens; that tries to make every board for you a little better and closer to your surfing style and waves than the last board. A board builder that wants to make you as satisfied as possible. Isn't that what custom surfboards are all about? Go to your big name board maker and tell them you would like a certain model board but with a 3-stage rocker, and see how fast you get a sales pitch for a different model. "It'll be exactly what you're looking for!" ...or exactly what they're looking for, to transfer your money to their wallet. Innovative huh? But people accept this as their only option. That bothers me. We don't ever want to be like that.

Factory

Update

Note: Many things have come up trying to get such a lot of things finished.
It seems to be taking forever, and progress has slowed to half the speed of smell. Several bells and whistles have been added to the website, but they are small things that are not readily noticeable. We're still working on so many things that seem to be going so slow. I guess that's the way it goes, but it is still frustrating.

Factory

Update

The website is being cleaned up and fixed. There are still more pages to be added in the future, including an order form, and later on, maybe even a page or two on basic surfboard repair, etc.

The factory is almost finished. Only a couple of workbenches, paint shelves, and a rolling cloth rack for the glassing room needs to be done, along with 3 more glassing stands and a new shaping stand. There are many more things to do, but they can be taken care of between production runs.

Just around the corner till the light of day,,, yeah ! -- Joan Jett
