Introduction: Wooden Surf/wake Board

This is a home-made wooden surfboard that I made out of 3/8 inch pine plywood. Sanded it down on the edges to get a nice edge. Bent it. Then painted it and used a polyurethane to seal and waterproof the wood. Works great and looks sick!
I'm going to make a full step by step instructable soon plus a instructable on a long board and board press.

Does it float a full grown man because it doesn't look very buoyant

Its not made to float on, its made to pull behind a boat like if you were to water ski

I would say yes...the alaya is made the same way...just no fins...and it floats...it truly depends on wave height...a board like this would be rad for shore break

Im not sure I would trust my 230+lbs on a wave with this but we used to make something very similar to pull behind a boat (in the late 60's wakeboarding wasn't a term) thank you for sharing
