Are we allowed to make surfboards in Huntington Beach California?

I’d like to shape and construct fiberglass surfboards (not epoxy) in the near future here in Huntington Beach, CA. But, a friend told me the other day that he heard there are a lot of zones that don’t allow it here. Is that true? If so, can you guys suggest a website where I could find out exactly where? Thank you for taking time to read this.
