"Sporting Wood" by Jon Coen
You can currently find a wonderful 4-page spread in the latest ESM called "Sporting Wood" by Jon Coen. The article discusses Jon's trip up to Maine last May where he visited Grain Surfboards and built his very own 5'10". We had actually ran a blog post about his trip last year entitled "JC, Maine & Grain" so it was pretty cool to read Jon's follow-up in his own words. I think this trip/experience is on most of our bucket lists and reading this article might just force many of us to save a few extra bucks, book a class and make it happen. Like Coen says, you'll leave with a board that you will ride for the rest of your life. Grab Issue #151 from your local surf shop or check out the online version here (pages 72-75)!
