Wooden surf/wake board

Featured
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
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

Its not made to float on, its made to pull behind a boat like if you were to water ski
i would love to see an instructable on this! My dad grew up in california making his own surfboards, and this gives me a chance to make one! Rated 5 stars!

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
