|You will need a couple sheets of
plywood, several long 2 x 4s, nails,
screws, and glue to complete this board.
Due to the size of the pieces the Tom
Blake cannot be shipped outside
We tested our prototype Tom Blake in the SUP and Kayak section of
San Onofre Beach. It floated well, didn't take on gallons of water and
created quite a stir among the other surfers. It was so much fun we
decided to make it a reasonable weight so everybody can enjoy it. We
replaced the heavy pine ribs and nose block with lightweight paulownia
and made them a little thinner. The weight savings is significant! The
pine version was about 80 lbs and the paulownia version will be about
half that. The changes aren't visible from the outside so it still looks
authentic hanging on the wall or used as a bar or table top.
