New board by Jools Matthews at Gulf Stream Surfboards

Jools at Gulf Stream Surfboards shaping the 'Blue Moon II'. Gulf Stream have been around since 1993 and are the only surf shop in North Devon which shape their own boards locally. All of the boards are made at the factory in Woolacombe, where after Jools has hand shaped them Ellis, their art worker, uses water based acrylic paints to create a customised design for each board. The next stage of the process then passes on to Matt, who laminates the boards and then finally JC, the sander and polisher, finishes them to perfection.
