Volume - If you're after a specific volume, you can enter this into the volume option. However, if your selected volume doesn't match your chosen dimensions, we'll contact you to discuss the options.


Hi Glass is a technique of increasing the ratio of fibreglass to resin so that the boards resistance to snapping is significantly increased without adding too much extra weight.  In general a Hi Glass board has about double the snap resistance of a conventional glass job. 

Gloss and Polish Finishes are created by adding a fine layer of gloss resin to the top and bottom of the board that is then cut and buffed to a high glossy finish. Gloss coats will add weight to a board, but the end result is a much more, durable long lasting  board


Resin Tints are a technique off adding colour by mixing the colour into the resin and then working that coloured resin into the fibreglass.  Resin tints require a great deal of skill and a lot more work, but they produce a rich depth of colour and because they are mixed by hand, no two resin tints are exactly the same.


Pinstriping is a classic 70's style technique of applying a fine pinline to run along the edge of the board's rail lap on either the top or bottom of the board. 


Delivery  You can pick your board up direct from the Byron Bay factory or get it shipped anywhere in Australia. Freight between Byron and Sydney is around $50 per board, payable to surf cargo on delivery. Freight to most capital cities is around $125. Regional areas need to get a quote.

Comments and Special Instructions Field - If you are unsure about something and cannot find the answer above, enter your query into this field.
