How A Surfboard Is Made

Surfboard Sanding

The sanding process is two fold and deserves more than just one photo but it was getting so damn hot this day that we snapped one photo in the sanding bay and got out of there. The key part of sanding is to take out as much resin as you can without compromising the strength and integrity of the board. You want it light but strong. Buy your local sander a beer sometime, they don’t get enough credit!

Surfboard Shipping

After the board is shaped, glassed, sanded and inspected for quality (the smallest of blemishes are unacceptable at JS) it goes to this fella who packs ‘em up with bubble wrap and sends them on your way. Maybe one day he’ll send a board to you!
