Abstract

Grain Surfboards in York was founded, almost accidentally, in 2005 by Mike LaVecchia. The company that makes surfboards out of locally grown wood and offers surfers the chance to build their own. The company came into being at the same time that Clark Foam, a large corporation that supplied polyurethane surfboard blanks, folded. The company’s employees all have diverse and eccentric experiences and backgrounds. The article also discusses LaVecchia’s insistence that every scrap of wood be used, rather than thrown away.
