Waxing Your Biscuit in San Francisco

Turns out surfboards made of wood, under 6-feet tall, are actually pretty ideal for riding the waves at Ocean Beach. Chris brought his newly built wooden “Biscuit” out with him to San Francisco recently, and waxed it up for it’s first party in the Pacific.

Grain Surfboards

And here’s what surfing in sunny California is like. Looks like a scene from The Goonies, but the wind eventually did back off and we ended up getting some nice waves on the wood board’s first time in the water.

    Did Data’s father invent that surfboard!? I’d be careful with it.

    Grain boards are from Maine, no? Helluva journey for a first session.

      yeah, the kits come out of Maine. Chris built this in New York, took it out to SF, and luckily left it with me until June to ride!
