The Grain " Sea Sled " body board

If you are looking for a project that is fun and not too big , this could be it ?

Grain Surfboards in Maine have a new body board design that could be just the ticket.

" Though we’ve had it kicking around the shop as an experimental board for a couple of years, originally The Sea Sled was more of a thought experiment in new bodyboard shapes than a real prototype. But when it became the first thing that visiting pros picked up, and when they came out of the water grinning, we knew we’d stumbled onto something special. The latest to love it was Keith Malloy who, when gathering footage for his upcoming body surfing/body boarding film, asked us after just one go-out if he could take it with him to Iceland. Hell, yeah you can.

And now they’re multiplying out in the shop, available to anyone who loves jetting down faces with the water at eye-level. Solid cedar, with distinctive side runners that channel the flow, this finless wonder is rugged, slippy, fast and fun. High speed slides are cake with the glide and low rotation resistance, and it’s small enough to keep in your trunk for anytime you’re feeling inspired."
