I recently got hold of some agave seeds with the aim of growing plants and harvesting the flower stem for a surfboard or two. Advice from the packet said they should flower in between 5 and 25 years from now...don't hold your breath for this one, but it'll be sweet satisfaction when this board gets built!
Just waiting on a couple of stragglers to get their donations banked... You know who you are, chop, chop! Raffle results WILL be posted tomorrow...some lucky lucky will be getting a phone call about a new stick!
Five days into the raffle and your chance of winning a custom board still stands pretty good. Get in quick and snap up a few tickets. Thank you so much to all the generous people who have donated already.

I'm building a few boards for the wall and decided to go with some 120 year old Matai and Rimu for a traditional Hawaiian Alaia with a stringer pieced together from driftwood. I'm not sure if it gets any more eco friendly or sustainable.
When you're wading knee deep round the workshop kicking tools and standing on nails, you start to realize the brush and shovel isn't really cutting it. I even got to joking that I made dust and sold the wood that was leftover...
2000 cubic foot per minute of dust extraction should hopefully help...
