Frame Kits

I was asked about making the board building process more accessible to those without a shop full of tools and those who don't want to take a month or more to build a board.

These days if someone want a hollow surfboard, I see that there are several ways to do it.
1. Invent one yourself.
2. Copy someone elses design. Look at pictures and take notes.
3. Get a "How To" guide.
4. Get the "How To" and templates.
5. Take a class.
6. Get a kit.
7. Or just pay someone to do it.

Each of those ways offers greater or lesser degrees of difficulty. Similarly, each person is different about where they want to jump into the board building process.

As I've refined my methods, I've found a simpler way to build boards, without having to create disposable jigs that take time to build.

I've created several sets of router patterns to cut frame parts for diffent models of boards, so that I can replicate them and offer them as "Frame Kits".The assembly time for a Frame Kit is less time than it takes to pull off your shoulder entry wetsuit, gloves and booties on a hard offshore day in late December in Washington State.

 

A Template Kits includes: The Center Stringer ,The Cross Ribs, The Outer Frame Rails and Nose and Tail Inserts .

Template Kits

Template Kits are full size tracings of the Frame Parts using a black Sharpie pen onto heavyweight brown “construction paper’ then mailed in a big manila envelope.

Template Kits have been refined so you do not need to build surfboard specific work tables to make a board. Template Kits include: the Stringer template, Cross Rib templates, Frame Rail templates and Nose and Tail Inset templates...Template Kits are $75....Each

Template Kit - $75


Ready To Assemble

Plywood Frame Kit - $250


If you get a Frame Kit (not a Template Kit), I offer the"How To" CD at half off - $50


All of the 9' plus boards require extra Stringer and Frame Rail assembly by you, because they would exceed the UPS shipping size if I sent them "ready to build". All that means is you need to iron on some "wood tape" (supplied) to make the frames the length they need to be.

Frame Kits are shipped in the continental USA via UPS and cost $30.


International shipping varies depending on destination.Shipping a frame kit to Hawaii, Australia or Europe costs more than it should. Hawaii is around $85 , Europe is something like $150. Contact me via e-mail for a shipping quote before you order.I'll probably suggest just getting a Template Kit and save yourself wasted money...


Of course I'll always answer any questions, should you need help.
