Founded by surfers from York Beach, Maine, Grain Surfboards is a New England company that crafts surfboards out of a composite of Northern White Cedar and air. The air of course allows the boards to float, and the wood gives the designs a more natural aesthetic and greater durability than those made of synthetic materials. Sustainably harvested from local mills, the wood is a responsible, eco-friendly choice as well. Green and hip, the boards are polished for shine, resistance, and performance on the water. Buy the designs prefabricated or build one using Grain Surfboards’ DIY kit.
