Our surfboards are hollow and built around a wooden skeleton. The wood used for the skin is mainly Paulownia (Kiri in Japanese). It is a light but resistant wood indigenous to Asia. Ours comes from plantations in Europe but soon will be planted and harvested here in Portugal.
Once the surfboard is shaped it is made waterproof using bio-sourced epoxy resin. This wood construction allow us to reduce the amount of fiberglass and epoxy compared to conventional foam surfboards. The result is a high quality and functional product, as light as foam surfboards, more resistant and definitely more sustainable. More and more we are also proposing a different building technique allowing us to only use water based varnish and hard oils on top of the wood, as for the Alaïas.
The surfboards are first designed using a CAD software. The skeleton is then exported, printed and the rest of the process is manual. All shapes are therefore possible to build. Between Mini-Simmons and 10' glider, Paipos and Alaïas, deep concaves and bellies.
You can contact us to discuss about the shape you want, it can be 100% customized but we also have a fixed list of tried and trusted shapes you can choose from. If you order a surfboard, we will discuss about it together around a first 3D proposition that can then be refined.
The fin system can be FCS, FCSII or Futures. We also make wooden fins that can fit those system or that can be glassed-on.
The prices for custom surfboards depends on the length of the surfboard and is calculated using the following formula:
150€ + 100€/foot
On top of that price add:
+ 15€ per fin box
+ 90€ glass-on single fin or 130€ twin fins
+ 50€ to 100€ for paint and art-job
+ 100€ for gloss polish
5'8'' fish with glass-on keel fins = 860€
7' single fin with single fin box = 865€
9'4'' noserider with single fin box = 1105€
