Wooden surfboards this weekend - Sunday 4th of August

Wooden surfboards are not new to Currumbin Alley as this early shot of a Johnny Danks on his toothpick enjoying a wave down the Alley. It looks like we will be in for some fine weather and great waves this coming weekend.

The Alley is a great spot anytime , but with the forecast weather and waves we are in for a great weekend by the looks of things. So pack up the family and your boards and spend a day with them in the park at the beach.
 So come early and have a morning surf at the point and then settle in for the day at the park. Bring your boards , alaia's , hand planes, body boards, surfies or what ever you have been building and having fun on as long as it is made of wood. Just lay them out in the park and find a spot to have a picnic lunch and meet other like minded wooden board builders , craftsmen and enthusiasts. There will be people from all walks of life and just stoked to be riding something they have designed and built themselves. Plenty of people who have lots of questions just like you and stories to share. Check out what others are up to and swap boards and go for a surf.

Around lunchtime Tom Wegener , myself and a couple of others will get together and discuss boards and answer questions and share our experiences. There is always plenty to learn and share and this is a great forum to become more informed.
I look forward to seeing your projects and catching up. If you have any questions you can get hold of me at - grantnewby@bigpond.com
