The Root Kit

$ 925.00


This is our most popular board to date. A classic semi performance 9’ noserider. Everyone needs one of these boards in their quiver. The Root features a moderate rocker, slight hollow in the nose and softer rails throughout. Perfect for those mushy knee to head high beach breaks. Smooth and fast.

Every Grain Home Grown Surfboard kit comes with all the components that go into the board including machine-cut keel and frames, top and bottom planks, rail strips, fin box, glue, epoxy, fiberglass, mixing buckets, gloves, instruction manual, etc. These kits are designed to be built by anyone with the room to to do it. Previous wood working experience is helpful, but not necessary. All you need is the ability to follow written directions and a little patience.

Some things you’ll need are not included in the kit – but most of it should be available locally. Hand tools and supplies are available here in the store as well.  The included manual shows how to make a simple rocker table from basic materials you can obtain locally (a rocker table forms the board to the correct rocker).  You can buy a precision cut rocker lift set right from us, too - see our Tools and Supplies section. It also helps to have a 4 to 6 bar clamps for assembling the top and bottom planks, but simple wood wedges could be used as well.
