I very much enjoyed watching this surfboard get made by hand because, well, I love watching anything get made by hand. But also, there are neat graphics that pop up and show what’s happening at each step of the process. You get to see an animation of what he’s actually doing to the surfboard and what shape he’s trying to get at—it’s craftsmanship with an explanation.

And after watching Mat, the maker of the board, tackle a longboard with tinted resin, cloth inlays, and cut laps, I can pretend that I know how to make one too.
