Grain Surfboards build custom wooden surfboards by hand using locally
grown sustainably managed woods. We also really enjoy sharing this
experience and the process with others and we do so through our
HomeGrown Surfboard kits and classes.
Grain has built a community of like minded people around the world who
share our values and have an appreciation for quality hand made
products that can have more impact on your surfing with less impact on
Our favorite app is Dooster.net. We use it to keep in touch with our
team of about a dozen people. Some of them work in our shop, while
others work at home or even 3000 miles away.
Using Dooster is a great way for us to manage our projects and tasks.
We can assign tasks quickly and the person gets an email. They don’t
need to login to Dooster but can just reply to the email and everyone
involved gets an email in turn.
The project managers can quickly see exactly who’s got what to do and
how the project is panning out. We use it for discussions and to share
files and information. It’s definitely working well for us. It helps
us stay organized and efficient and reach more goals. We’re a small
company with big goals and limited resources. Dooster is a godsend to
a small businesses like ours. We are spreading the word about the
service to our friends. Thanks for making a truly great tool.
