I've been kinda kicked the idea of building my own surfboard for awhile. Before I get started I would like to pick up the all basic tools I would need. I unfamiliar with carpentry tools and would like a list

Surfersteve says to use hand tools on your first build. Makes sense, after over-doing it a bit with power tools on a repair :D

Safety equipment: respiratory filter, eye protection, disposable gloves, hearing protection if using loud power tools. Fire extinguisher.

Cutting tools: Saw, scissors, carpet knife, coarse file

Sanding tools: sanding block, various grits sand paper.

Drilling: variable speed power drill, drill bits

Laminating: scale or measuring cups, disposable cups and stirrers, squeegees, brushes, cotton rags

Nice to have: router, orbital sander

You will need a space to work and store stuff, ideally with good ventilation, good lighting and not too cold or hot.

You will need to build some trestles too, so add hammer, nails, screwdriver, screws, wood, foam, duct tape to the list.
