Grain Surfboards Wood Biscuit
York Beach, Maine isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think surfing. Mike LaVecchia is okay with that – he’s the guy out surfing in the wind-slop when the rest of us can still see our breath and are wearing turtlenecks. He’s also the founder of Grain Surfboards. With a background in snowboards and traditional boat building, Mike started building beautiful wood boards that let surfers lessen their impact on the planet, and surf a great board. Built of local white cedar on a lightweight, rugged, internal frame, their boards are fully structural before they’re even glassed – which means that a heavily-used Grain board will never show pressure dings, doesn’t stress-crack, and surfs (and looks) as good years from now as it did when it first hit the water.
They have dozens of styles and sizes to choose from. The board pictured is a wooden version of the 2008 board of the year by Channel Island, The Biscuit.
