The newest custom to leave the shop is this little 6′ thruster. It is built using all recycled redwood for the decks, and cork rails covered with Kevlar cloth. The customer was ordering his board while the Kevlar Slider was in the process of being built. He loved the kevlar look, and the added strength was another selling point. So… he asked for kevlar rails. The combination of high-tech materials such as kevlar (high impact and abrasion resistance, low weight), and the beauty and strength of wood makes these boards pretty special. I also added Future Fin boxes since the owner will be travelling with it. Also, the nail holes in the redwood were filled with copper tack heads.The top deck was intentionally left “rough”, without hot coats, in order to shed some weight and make waxing a breeze. The board has a single concave running the entire length, measures 6′ x 18 7/8″ x 2 3/8″ and weighs in at 12 lbs. So far he has surfed it a few times, and says it hauls a$$ and holds a rail like no other. Stoked!
