In part four of On Boards Ryan Martz explains the health and environmental concerns of glassing surfboards and breaks down wages for surfboard laborers. Parmenter further illuminates the economics of board building, why some surfboard manufacturing has been outsourced, the strengths and weaknesses of that business model as well as the environmental, health, and economic considerations of outsourcing surfboard manufacturing.
