Costa Norte Surfboards - The Dominican Republic

 Chris Cook is from the North Coast of the Dominican Republic and has started building wooden boards there. He starts with a solid wooden rail construction as above and then adds his frames, below to give the final deck and bottom contours.

 Not an easy process shaping solid rails and foiling them prior to the deck and bottom skins going on.

 Complete frame showing rocker , outline and foiling

 Bottom skin ready to go on

 Working out fin placement prior to positioning blocks inside the board for fin plugs

All starting to come together. I fyou would like to check out what else Chris has been up to :
