Robert Ivers builds a great looking board

Robert sent me these shots to share with you.
"I attended your Hollow Wooden Board Day last August and had a great day; I will be coming back again this year with a few mates. Met a few interesting people like Noddy from Japan.

I thought you might be interested in the boards I am producing down here on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria Australia. Made from Plantation Grown Paulownia and recycled Western Red Cedar, hope you like them."

Surfrider Foundation Board Swap

Adam Feichtmann, President of Surfrider Foundation Gold Coast and Tweed. , just sent me this note to let everone know that he is organising the Surfrider Foundation Board Swap that is coming up on Saturday May 1st at Currumbin Alley .

" We are trying to run a simple event that promotes the recycling of surfboards. It is pretty simple: Grab and old board that you have just sitting around the house/garage and bring it to the Alley on May 1st 9am-12pm with the hope of "swapping" it with another mate who brought their old boards. The event is free, and could cost nothing to pick up your next favorite board. If you wanted to hand out some flyers and do have the resources to print them, we could meet up and I could give you a handful of flyers. (I live in Palmy)" Cheers,

Adam Feichtmann

Rasta at Noosa ...

Beautiful new project finished

Local Gold Coast plumber Craig Paterson has just finished his 3rd surfboard. And what a beautiful job he has done.

Some great wood working details on the deck.

Some nice artwork by his son on the bottom...

The vital stats down the stringer...

Goretex breather and wood detail to be proud of...

Great looking board Craig. He says it goes so well it will be his daily rider . So if you have a project out there to share send it to me. Also remember there will be another Wooden Board Day on Sunday the 8th of August at Currumbin Alley again. You better get started on that new project to bring along.
