Good things take time.

Last summer's harvest of Agave from around the Wellington coast is currently drying in my roof. I'm hoping it will be ready for shaping later in the year.

How short can a Log be before it's a Stump?

A sweet little 6'6" hull recently in and out of the workshop. Rolled bottom into a vee through the tail, a great board for Lyall Bay with a 4 + 1 setup.

Back in the workshop

The past two years have seen me spending too many hours running a cafe and too few hours shaping and surfing.  

I am now back in the workshop and building plusher boards than ever before. We have some rad new boards happening and are currently taking orders. 

Please bear with us as I update the website with new pics and info and check back soon for the good stuff. 

Mahalo, Bob.

Wooden Board Day

Had a super trip to the Gold Coast.
The waves were small but the sun was out and the water was warm.

The wooden surfboard day was such a ripper I forgot to take any photo's.
Check out the massive variety of boards and people at the event on Grant Newby's Blog

Super stoked with my new paipo aka 'The Bomber'
It's an absolute speed machine, and I'm loving the concave deck.

Balsa anyone?

Why not have a lash at building your own board for summer?
We've got the biggest stick's available in NZ!
Drop us a line with what your needing...

Grown on a sustainable farm in Ecuador.
Build a board, build some memories.

Two posts...

...and a stick of balsa.

29 stringers from two recycled matai posts.
The bandsaw had a real workout with this blank.
