We're proud to now offer our complete line of surfboard kit designs as Full-Scale Paper Plans. These plans offer a great way to start the process of building your own board, whether you're looking to use that leftover decking sitting in your garage or are just wanting an inexpensive way to dip your toes into the process.
Paper Plans include full-scale keel and frames, nose and tail templates, board outline, construction detail notes, plus a 46 page instruction manual that covers the high points of the building process including dims to mill your planks and rails. Start out by buying yourself some plywood, spray adhesive and a jigsaw and you're off and running.
Please note that paper plans are not for everyone. We believe those who will be most successful are people who already know how to build a board of this style, have tools and understand how to use them and are pretty self reliant through the process. If you are simply looking for the surfboard shape defined by these plans, then these plans and the accompanying instruction manual should be enough for you to build a great board.
For those of you who haven't built a board like this before, and are unsure of your skill level, we’d recommend you start with a complete HomeGrown Kit which includes all of the materials you need to build a board.
If you purchase the plans and then decide within 30 days that this is more than you're willing to bite off, we'll even credit $50 of the purchase price towards a full HomeGrown Kit when you're ready to place an order. Just give us a call to place the order.
