So what i want to know now, is how much would you want to build ME a board...

Being sensible with pricing, and allowing for your valuable time and materials... With profit of course...

How much...???

I am sure it is a question on many peoples minds, and i am prepared to pay to get a hand made, decent powder board...

Wooah guys settle down lol. Im still a beginner at this remember !
I still have a few things to perfect with my methods, once I am confident enough I can produce boards to the standard I am aiming for we can speak about running a few extras for people who are interested.
Atm the biggest expense and most time consuming part is making profile molds. I am building some new adjustable molds to accommodate different length boards in both rc and camber profiles (camber mostly for splits so they grip well)
I can build any length and any shape board with any flex but the rocker profiles will all be powder orientated.
I wont be building anything you can already buy basically.

Let me crank out a few more boards, sort some things out and then we can start talking about hookups. And thanks for the stoke guys, its very flattering

Some of the new shapes i am building. I am playing with some big sidecut radii this season so i can draw some long arcs when carving.


Round nose board =8m radius
Square nose board =16m radius


A few boards in various stages of completion

Sweet! Looking good! FWIW, my board has a roughly 12m sidecut and it rides well at medium and long radius carves. That 16m sidecut should carve HARD...
