Tide X Otter

  • Martin Spurway

As part of a workshop to design and make my own surfboard, I worked with Otter Surfboards in Porthtowan, UK to make a wooden surfboard sourced from sustainable woodlands. The board is designed to mix traditional surfboard construction techniques similar to Tom Blake in the 1930's with a modern design aesthetic. This documents the process of the design and preparation as well at the 5 day workshop at Otter Surfboards. The board was then finished and glassed at Diplock Phoenix in Wadebridge, UK.
