Hi there and thanks for dropping by. I'm a custom board builder and thrive on being the interface between you and the waves. I can and do make all sorts of boards to help you surf beyond your ability, be it at the elite level or just starting out. I'm hands on, and utilise the latest technology to handcraft you the best board I possibly can that will stoke you to the eyeballs and turn you into the happiest surfer in the water.....gotta love that. :-)
Hi there guys and girls, I just have to show you this variation of a HPmalibu that I made for Liam. He was looking for a mal that would be a good nose rider, have plenty of glide and paddle but still be able to flick it around a bit. Sounds fair enough to me....A few nice features in this board made it a joy to make. Triple hand cut cedar veneer stingers, timber tail blocks, blue faded spray and to top it off, a custom made decal of his Maton guitar.
Rocker wise, there is a moderate overall curve in the board with bottom features sitting inside this basic design. Concave in the nose feeding a double concave in the tail, progressive short board rails that spiral from upturned in the nose to down-turned low and boxy in the tail, allow you to perch for ten over or step back for a modern approach to the wave. The Phantom Driver fin was the obvious choice for this board. A drill through box for the leash attachment...(this is where I drill a hole through the back of the fin box through to the deck and you attach the leggy string through it)... as I couldn't bring myself to putting a plug in such a nice board.
Board and rider were last seen heading to Straddie for week or two of relaxation and aquatic activities.
