Polyurethane, polystyrene or fiberglass? Nah, just wood

        Portland based eyewear company Schwood just released one more video of its experiment series. 

This new clip shows a group of surfers building a wooden surfboard made entirely of an old log found on the beach. This takes surfing up to its origins as the first surfboards were made of this material. 

Back in the time, wooden boards were made using the Wili Wili, the Ula and the Koa tree's and ranged from 10 to 16 feet long depending on social class. For hawaiian commoners  the size was about 10-12 feet while for the noblemen and chiefs the size was between 14-16 feet.
