The production line

It’s been a busy couple of months in the old Sea Dragon Surfboards shed. I’ve just finished the board in the last post, and just before Christmas I delivered two more to happy customers.

The first was for Sean, a local plumber, in return for some really useful emergency work he did around our place throughout the year last year. He’s a novice surfer, but not a small bloke. The brief was to make it as stable and beginner-friendly as possible, without compromising on style in the process. I gave it a nice Balinese batik inlay and Sean couldn’t have been more stoked.

The second of the two also had a batik inlay, although it was for a much shorter recipient – my 5yo son Charlie. It’s a 4’11” x 16″ x 2 1/4″ single fin, using a fin that I shaped myself out of plywood, which Charlie then marbled with artist’s ink (no photos of the fin). He hasn’t got on it yet, but was pretty excited to just have a board.
