From the plantations of Central America to California....
If you are interested in a solid longboard blank for your favorite
shaper to whittle, contact me. Or let Brian Kang shape one.
Brian does excellent work on balsa.
Length is 9' to 9'10", approximately 2-3/4" thick.
Natural curve in the balsa provides suitable rocker for 60's style
boards; the modern rocker is also available.
Stinger patterns are custom to your specifications. I use either
cedar or old growth redwood.
Laminated tailblock materials and up to three stringers are included
in the price.

Going retro? This 10'3" board (above) was shaped by Bill Hoopes and
now graces the waves at Waikiki. For more on this retro board and its owner,
