Greener Surfer Interview with Bill Bulgen – “A master craftsman.”3 types

It shows in the surfboards he produces. His Woodpecker hollow wood sleds have a very different vibe when you pick them up, feel the weight and test the rail. You get a growing sensation that this board you’re holding is ALIVE.

Bill has taken a leaf out of the original board builder’s book a Mr Tom Blake. The legendary surfer and shaper was the first to produce hollow wooden framed surfboards in the 1930’s, based on the traditional boards from Hawaii.

We had a chat with Bill to get some insight into his journey.

Our wooden surfboard designs feature significant entry concave to improve nose-riding potential and an incremental exit roll to increase speed.
