The 7th Annual Wooden Surfboard Day

 This years wooden surfboard day went off well. The weather was about 25c and the wind was from the North West all day so the surf was not worth looking at. But it was warm and clear and people were out and about. A great crew of regular board builders and lots of new faces as well. Maybe not as many boards as in the past but a steady stream of very interested onlookers with lots of questions.
Most are blown away that we share all our ideas and the help each other out by sharing our knowledge and experiences with each other. And why not. We encourage each other and support each other to experiment and have a go. We have mutual repect for each other as there is no easy way of building a wooden board. But there is no better feeling of surfing on something you have crafted yourself. Thanks to all who came and made the day what it was. Thanks to Stone a Wood for the nice cold beers at the end of the day. They were much appreciated by all.
