Wooden Surfboard Fins from Japan

All the way from Japan, Nobby making a visit to our Northgate Workshop It was a great delight to see in Australia and in Brisbane Nobuhito Ohkawa (aka Nobbby)  who made a special visit to my workshop.

Nobby makes beautiful wooden surfboards and surfboard fins in Chiba City, just outside of Tokyo .

We have become friends over the last few years, sharing experiences, and  I was lucky enough to see his workshop whilst I was in Japan last year, and I was happy to return the hospitality this week when Nobby made  a visit to our Northgate workshop whilst he was in Brisbane .

Nobby personally delivered my custom made fins which are made from walnut , rock maple and purple heart.

Walnut with maple and purple heart.  Such exquisite hand made fins. The icing on the wooden surfboard cake.

I cannot wait to attach these on to one of my boards and test it out in the water
