If you have been dreaming of owning a beautiful Seawood surfboard but would prefer to build one yourself, our 168-page illustrated guide may be just what you need to get started. Seawood’s head shaper/glasser Ted Salois offers uncountable tips and tricks developed over many years of constructing solid, lightweight, wooden surfboards. More than 100 full-color photos show precise details of the building process. Although the book begins with a chapter on how to design your own shape and parts on a computer, the author makes available a template for a nine-footer. The to-scale (100%) drawings include three classic fin designs. The book can be ordered online.
