Single fin “Funboard”

CAD Single
6′ 10″ x 21 1/2″ x 2 3/4″. I wanted a pure, fun, simple, surfboard to enjoy. Not the baddest, raddest, hottest, sickest or any other such go hard number. Just easy paddling, flowing, and with enough lift and glide to make it through flat sections long board style but without being a longboard. A board to enjoy that demands neither perfect positioning nor the cleanest, fastest of waves in order to be fun.

Construction is glass/paulownia wood/glass sandwich over an EPS core with carbon over carbon/dyneema rails effectively making the rails parabolic stringers. A Goretex vent is fitted so the board “breathes” automatically with temperature changes and the leash is through connected into the fin box retro style. The small logo is burn branded discreetly. The board is very strong, very light, a lot of fun and imbued with the natural beauty of wood and carbon fibre. Sweet!

This has to be one of the purest forms of surfing and this video makes riding an alaia look pretty easy but it certainly isn’t… When I first saw videos of people riding such simple finless wooden boards I instantly new I had to build and try one. They’re darn difficult to ride, especially if you’re not built like a stick insect. Learning to paddle and stand up is a full mission in itself, however when used as a simple body board they’re way easier but still an absolute hoot, just perfect for those smaller summer low tide closeout barrels. I’ve made these out of both paulonia and red cedar; the board pictured here is made from beautiful weather edged paulownia sourced from maverick surfboard builderĀ Roy Stewart via Loose Fit in Devon.
