The Detailed Art of Handcrafting a Surfboard

There's something soothing about watching items getting created right before our eyes. One Vimeo user named Mat uploaded the step-by-step process of him making his own surfboard.

He first sands down and shapes the polyurethane foam making sure no uneven surfaces make it past him. He then adds floral fiberglass cloth inlay and coats the whole thing with what appears to be an epoxy resin.

Mat also includes animations detailing exactly what part of the board he's featuring.

Surfboards can cost anywhere from $200 to $5,000 depending on the designer and material. What better way to ensure you're getting the quality you want by making your own?
