Join us in Jimmy’s shop on Maui for a little classroom session on board construction. In this short, two part video series Jimmy talks about different types of board construction used in the SUP industry. He will show examples of these different types of constructions and explain how they are made. He also performs some tests to demonstrate each of their strengths/weakness, how they compare to each other and why Jimmy Lewis Boards are the best boards made!
First video is about basic board construction (core and outer “shell”). The second video talks about the fin boxes and all inserts in JL boards.
