BODHI TREE SURFBOARDS DIY SURF BOARD FRAME KITS
 
THE DIY KIT GIVES YOU THE PERFECT SKELETON TO CREATE YOUR OWN
 HOLLOW WOODEN SURFBOARD, BODYBOARD, OR SUP.
 
WE HAVE TWO OPTIONS FOR KITS ;
1. JUST THE FRAME
2.THE FRAME AND FIXINGS
EACH FRAME IS DESIGNED TO BE CUSTOMISED AS DESIRED, FROM OUR MAIN  FRAMES YOU CAN BUILD PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING. YOU CHOOSE YOUR
APPROXIMATE DESIRED LENGTH AND PURPOSE AND WE'LL MAKE SURE YOU GET THE FRAME THAT WILL GET YOU CLOSE TO YOUR DREAM.
THE FIXINGS ARE THE FIN MOUNTS, EITHER FCS1 PLUGS, 10 OR 12 INCH FIN BOX, LEGROPE DECK PLUG, AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PART THE BREATHER.
EACH HOLLOW WOODEN SURFBOARD HAS A BREATHER PLUG TO ALLOW THE AIR PRESSURE INSIDE THE BOARD TO BE NORMALISED. BASIC RULE IS THAT WHEN IT'S IN THE WATER THE PLUG IS IN.
THE BOARDS WILL NEVER BE SUPER HIGH PERFORMANCE AND WE DON'T DESIGN THEM TO BE BUT THEY WILL CATCH YOU MORE WAVES THAN YOUR MATES WITH A BIGGER SMILE ON YOUR DIAL ON A BOARD YOU BUILT YOURSELF.
 
TO COMPLETE YOUR BUILD YOU'LL NEED TO GET WOOD FOR YOUR
DECKS AND RAILS. FOR THE DECKS WE RECOMMEND USING PAULOWNIA AND SOME WESTERN RED CEDAR FOR DETAILS. FOR PAULOWNIA GET IN TOUCH WITH DAVID AT AUSTRALIAN PAULOWNIA TIMBER SALES HE DELIVERS WORLD WIDE AT A GREAT PRICE FOR A GREAT PRODUCT.

FOR PRESERVATION AND USE IN THE SURF THE BOARDS NEED TO BE GLASSED. WE USE AND RECOMMEND SURFSET FLEX RESIN WHICH IS AVAILABLE FROM JOHN AT SANDED AUSTRALIA, IT'S AN EPOXY ACRYLIC RESIN WHICH IS SUPER CLEAR AND SUPER STRONG, WE GLASS A DOUBLE LAYER OF 4OZ GLASS ON THE TOP AND A SINGLE LAYER OF 4OZ ON THE BOTTOM, CHAT TO JOHN AND HE CAN HELP YOU OUT WITH COLAN AUSTRALIAN WOVEN FIBERGLASS CLOTH OR HIS OWN AUSTRALIAN WOVEN FLAX CLOTH FOR A FULL ECO BOARD.
