Initial trial of building a hollow Surfboard out of spare planks and crates

By the end of the last year, I found the story board of the shapers legend Brink. I reached out to him and actually found out he is from Kommetjie_Cape Town in South Africa, the place, where the Local Surfboard Project will he started later on. He enchouraged us to go for the process of bulding the crates board and also confirmed, that he would be more tha happy to help designing boards for underpriviledged kids in rural areas to make themselves - amazing guy and defenettly on our list to cooperate with.

Here you can see some images of our process and how we actually produced a surfboard like item in just five days. Friends came in checked out what we were doing and did not quite understad how this heavy chunk should surf. But thats the point. We are so diven to super light, high performance surfboards even though very few of us surf at a level or on waves, that require such boards. And especially for the kids the most importatnt ting is to be durable and easy to make.

We had a grat time working on this.

Thanks so much to Chischi, my friend an man of the first hour, who jumpe in with full commitment and helped me puttimg this experience together. For me it really was the physicel startimg poiint of the project
