Design Your Board

A Few Helpful Tips

  • Model

    We have an extensive range of boards and have a model for every surf. Choose the model, that suits you best.
  • Size / Width / Thickness

    It is possible to tweak and change stock dimensions.
  • Carbon Patches

    Carbon patches help to reinforce strength on your rail around the tail. This, is useful because the tail area is the first place to give out on your surfboard. This is due to the fact that your toes and heals really dig in when surfing. 

What We Need From You

Let us know your preferred surfboard brand. We have some of the largest brand collections of surfboards in Australasia. Pyzel, Album, Christenson, DHD, Chilli and more.

Choose the specific model that suits your surfing style and skill level. Whether you prefer a high-performance shortboard, a versatile fish, or a classic longboard we have you covered.

Specify the length of your custom surfboard. Determining the ideal size depends on factors such as your height, weight, and skill level. Our knowledgeable team can guide you in finding the optimal size for your needs.

The width of the surfboard plays a crucial role in stability and maneuverability. Let us know your preferred width or seek our advice to ensure the perfect balance for your surfing goals.

The thickness of the board affects buoyancy and paddle power. Providing us with your desired thickness allows us to create a surfboard that aligns with your specific requirements.

Surfboard volume is a key factor in determining the board's overall floatation and ease of use. Please indicate the volume range you prefer, or we can assist you in determining the appropriate volume based on your surfing ability.

Fin System
Choose your preferred fin system for your custom surfboard. We offer a variety of options, including Futures, FCS, and more. Each fin system offers unique characteristics that can enhance your surfing experience.

Fin Setup
Select your desired fin setup configuration. Whether you prefer the classic thruster, the speed and maneuverability of a quad setup, the versatility of a five-fin setup, or the retro feel of a twin fin or sugar fin setup, let us know your preference.

Choose your glassing finish. This refers to the layers of fiberglass cloth and resin that are applied to provide strength, durability and performance. We commonly use Standard - 4+4 Deck : 4 Bottom or Strong - 6+4 Deck : 4 Bottom, but there are ultra-light and bullet proof glassing options to enquire with our team.

Clear, Sprayed or Tinted with color of choice, Full tint, half spray, rail spray, deck inlays or anything else you have in mind. We can provide quotes on any added spray request.
