Surforms work well. They were invented for wood to begin with.
However, I get much more use from a two sided Shinto rasp.

You will see various riding styles.
I never could figure out that really extreme arched back style associated with many of the "boogie" type bodyboarders.
You don't see that style as much with f ...

For those interested in Greenough's surf history, there is a fine photo article in TSJ Vol.7 #4.

Greenough started surfing riding standup in the mid fifties and made himself a 6 foot surfboard in high school, several years before the shortboard revolution.
He says he always hated the way longbo ...

Thanks for what you do.
IMNSFHO, there's nothin' better for tiny, gutless surf then a long skinny alaia. Even in tiny junk they still go like a scalded cat.

Modern adhesives are stronger then the wood.
I use T2 Epoxy.
Some folk use Titebond II or III but I don't like ' ...
