Introduction: The Birth of a Fresh Water Surfboard
For a complete step by step on building your own surfboard, I defer to the King himself: Andrew W. I followed his steps to make my first fresh water surfboard, intended for the Great Lakes. Find Andrew W's Youtube series on building a surfboard here.
I picked up a block of foam from the hardware store, epoxied it together, cut out the rocker profile with a hot wire foam cutter (with wood stencils on the sides as guides), sanded it to shape, added a couple layers of fibreglass and epoxy, sanded, added fin boxes and a leash plug, and took it out on the lake!
