Greenroom Factory Open House

Next Saturday, do yourself a favor and check out the Greenroom surfboard factory. This may be Wilmington's best kept secret. It's not located where you think. This is not the Greenroom on South College Road. This is their factory, hidden behind the back door of the dry cleaners next to Buffalo Wild Wings at Monkey Junction. Hidden behind that unmarked door, is a huge surfboard factory occupying 3/4 of that retail space. The dry cleaner only has a tiny space inside the building.

The Greenroom makes and markets their own epoxy resin, all over the US. Their epoxy is one of the best on the market.

The Greenroom also builds one of the highest quality custom boards out there. A little known secret, is that most all surfboards are made with E cloth. But, the Greenroom uses lots of S cloth in their boards. S cloth is twice the cost of E, so 90% of surfboards do not contain any S cloth. But not at the Greenroom. They use the best stuff out there. Check them out next Saturday. You'll be glad you did.

I get my supplies there. You can pick up a custom board, or buy a kit for building one yourself and maybe get a few tips while there. Jimmy is very generous when it comes to helping home builders.

P.S. I hope everyone caught the fantastic surf tonight. The best session we've caught since the hurricanes were in town.
