Grain Surfboards’ New GreenRail Technology Enables Eco-Friendly Boards at More Affordable Prices

Based in Maine, the master craftsmen behind Grain Surfboards have been building wooden surfboards since 2005 as well as teaching workshops and producing surfboard-making kits for the DIYers among us. This summer they launched their GreenRail construction, combining their traditional wood building techniques with 100% recycled PET plastic. I sat down with Mike LaVecchia, founder of Grain Surfboards (virtually of course), to hear a bit more about their process for building a surfboard and what this new GreenRail construction is all about.

Mike said the material they use in all of their boards is Northern White Cedar.

“We actually design the process around cedar as it’s a nice stable, rot-resistant, weather-resistant material,” says LaVecchia. “As well as the fact that it’s kinda local and we know where it’s coming from, and it’s being managed at sustainable levels is all pretty important to us.”

Innovations in Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining present new challenges and new opportunities for manufacturers. Recent developments are changing the game. 

To stay competitive, today’s shop needs to leverage both the technology and the workforce for competitive advantage. Three trends to watch are multi-axis machines, human-machine interface,  and interconnectivity or “smart” machines.

“Right now — as it’s harder and harder to find good programmers and operators of machinery — with manufacturing being on the rise, many companies are looking more to automation and machines with attached robots to help keep up with the pace of the market. 5-axis machinery is still very hot as well and is becoming more and more easily found in standard job shops across the country,” explains Tom Kohm, President & CEO of Premier Equipment, a leading seller of used CNC machines.

Tech-Fluent Leaders Can Make the Case for Technology Investments

The COVID-19 pandemic heralded great unemployment across the country earlier this year. In hard-hit Washington state, a record number of financially stricken citizens sought unemployment benefits, overwhelming public agencies.

In looking at state public services, which were stymied by a lack of IT support, The Seattle Times recently found a beacon of hope in Suzi LeVine, the state’s Employment Security Department commissioner. A former Microsoft executive, LeVine possesses the aptitude and, specifically, the “exceptional tech fluency” to match resources against the challenges, the newspaper says. She knows how to solve the problem and how to speak to it.

Deloitte defines tech fluency as “the ability to broadly understand and confidently discuss IT concepts.” The firm regularly examines the idea that corporate CIOs should not only possess tech fluency but also learn the language of business. These combined capabilities result in more comprehensive and convincing technology leadership. Greater tech fluency lends

(Free Webinar) Create A Student Safety Bubble With Modern Bus Technology

Fight illegal passing to save lives.
