>> Lon Klein talks about a jig he uses to shape his Dick Brewer surfboards. While the company also creates custom wooden doors, individualized surfboards are Klein’s passion. Each takes about 400 hours of labor and carries a hefty price: $13,000 for a 7-foot, 3-inch wooden board with core or $20,000 for a 10-foot, 6-inch hollow wooden board.
