Honeycomb Surfboard

These days you can use a CNC mill for just about anything it seems. This video by Mike Grobelny shows a time lapse process of creating a honeycomb-filled wooden surfboard the not so old fashioned way. While he acknowledges that the age-old argument that time-honored traditions lose their essence when fabrication goes digital, Grobelny makes a strong case for himself that most off-the-rack surfboard consumers basically will never appreciate the difference in craftsmanship. Call me a purist, but I tend to disagree. It’s still an interesting video though that documents a new process in surfboard manufacturing.
