I built a series of hardwood-chambered surfboards. Surfing has always been a great passion of mine; I have always been looking for a way to take my passion to the next level. During my sophomore year, I had a similar assignment called “Personal Project,” during which I shaped and glassed a PU foam board. This is where I technically began my Senior Project research on how different shapes of rails, tails, noses, bottom contours, lengths, and widths affect the feel of a board while riding it. For my Senior Project, I took my passion even further while reverting back to the roots of surfing. The boards I have built are inspired by the boards I use, but I was able to improve and tweak the designs to more personalized specifications.
