Got some more blanks in yesterday, including this 'greenfoam' blank which is made of recycled foam. The extra foam shaved off a blank during shaping is captured and turned back into raw material to make a new blank. (http://www.greenfoamblanks.com/) I was going to glass this one with a pine based epoxy resin (http://www.entropyresins.com/). Maybe a bamboo or hemp cloth also? There are options out there if you want your surfboard to be more environmentally friendly. Give me a shout if you are interested.

Starting off the new year with a new wood board project. 5'8 quad egg with HEAVY single concave all the way through. It will have a thin balsa deck and rails but foam bottom. Hoping to get some bennnnnnnnd to this one.
Here is to a 2012 filled with fun waves and good buds on a favorite shred sled! Thank you to everyone who commissioned a shape from me last year - I had a lot of fun making you boards!
