@Elizabeth – I am sure 3D printing would do a massive change in the manufacturing industry. Very soon you could have a component printed while you wait.

@Elizabeth – Why do you still prefer hand craft boards still? Do you mean to say 3D printed boards are not accurate and neat? Is it the material and the hardness?

@Elizabeth – Wow that's impressive to see 3D printers printing surf boards. What can the 3D printer not print?

The other thing I wanted to say is that yes, while 3D printing does seem to be moving into the commercial realm, MADE Boards isn't actually selling its products yet and it seems like initially these will be more specialized, custom products. But they are definitely planning large production volumes, so I suppose 3D printing is going to prime time.

Yes, I'm a surfer, Rob, but not the kind you see riding those little boards on TV--I ride a longboard, which is better for older people like me that just want to enjoy the waves and have fun. :) I, too, was suprised to see 3D printing for something like this, as you can tell by my story. But it seems quite possible and could be an interesting proposition for surfboard design and production in the future. Although I still think handcrafted custom boards are the best, in my opinion.

My goodness, I didn't realize you were a surfer, Elizabeth. Ah, the hidden talents of the DN team. I'm surprised 3D printing has moved to large commercial products.
