women who surf
My boyfriend, who taught me to surf, made this board for me from scratch. I actually learned a lot from him about the process of shaping boards. First he had to order what they call a "blank" from Clark Foam, the only supplier of the styrofoam inners from which all boards were made. I say "were," because in the past few years, TUFLITE boards by Surftech, machine-made and much more durable, have become available and quite popular. They have more of a cookie-cutter look and are more expensive. But they are lighter than traditional boards, and they definitely seem more adept to handling the wear and tear of surfing.
