Megatrough started off as my personal blog about 7 years ago and for the last two years, it somehow ended up also doubling as the online face for Driftwood Caravan Surfboards. Last week, I launched a new home for my craft at www.driftwoodcaravan.com. Here you will find photos, all the details on my shapes, videos, and an online store where you can purchase surfboards, t-shirts and some of the things I am currently working on.
Thanks for checking it out and thanks for continuing to follow!

Ive been posting a lot of pics and videos recently of a few of my buddies riding the various shapes I've created. During these sessions, I have also been passing these boards around quite a bit in the water and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching others have a good time as well.
Currently in rotation is a 9'6 DC Sam, a 6'2 Driftwood stubby and a 7'6 Double Ender.
Lets go surf.

When I started shaping boards back in 2006, one of my biggest inspirations came when I took my first wave on a 7'6 super smoothie shaped by Greg Liddle. at that point I had already been infatuated with surfboards and alternative surfboard design since I was 8. The "hull" was a game changer. I had to figure out how it worked and how I could create the same sensation i got from riding those boards with my own two hands. After several years and several design revisions, here is what I have come up with. This is the best hull I have shaped and ridden in terms of performance and use-ability. IT can be shrunken down to lengths as short as 5'8 and stretched up to lengths of 8'6 or more.
This is a 6'2 Driftwood Stubby with a burnt orange tint, sanded gloss finish, deck/ tail patch, cedar stringer and 6oz glass over US Blanks green density foam. It is for sale to a good home as part of my offering of stock surfboards. Custom price starts at $750

Small clean waves and Cale's 6'11 DC Double Ender. Shot and edited by David Carpio . I love watching how these boards gently displace water in trim.
