Portsmouth shop finds groove with handcrafted wood surfboards, snowboards and skateboards

"What we're trying to do is go back in time and pick up where wood boards left off," says LaVecchia. "We're taking basic techniques that Tom Blake and others invented in the '40s and applying some modern thinking and materials to create a board that has all the environmental benefits of simpler times, but also serves the needs of today's surfers."
