FAQs

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Buying a bespoke bodyboard can be expensive. One off orders carry a premium, and shipping and import taxes can push the price up still further. By ordering boards in bulk we can reduce those costs and pass the savings on to you.

HOW REGULARLY DO YOU PLACE AN ORDER WITH YOUR SUPPLIER?

We submit an order to our supplier every 6 months just to make sure we get enough people together to make the order worthwhile. If this venture proves popular we will look at making the orders more regularly.

WHO SHAPES THE BOARDS?

The boards are shaped by CustomX in California, USA. They have been in the industry for over 24 years, have extensive knowledge of bodyboard shaping and use the best products. You can be sure that you will end up with a top quality product.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Boards start from £160, and increase in cost depending on the features you select.

HOW LONG WILL I WAIT FOR MY BOARD?

We are working towards delivering the boards 4-6 weeks from the date the order is submitted to the supplier.

Buying Guide

1. CORE TYPE

PP – Light, stiff, durable and fast, this is generally the core of choice for more advanced riding.
PE – Heavier and more flexible than PP, but can offer increased control especially in colder waters.

2. TEMPLATE

Prone – A solid versatile template suitable for entry level right up to pro.
Drop Knee – Custom DK template designed by Dean Page

3. Length

The boards are available in three length options 41.25″, 42.25″ and 43.25″.

4. TAIL

Crescent Tail – The more common tail shape, it’s comfortable, versatile and provides a good level of control.
Bat Tail – The extra buoyancy at the back of the board can provide additional speed especially in smaller waves, but can also make it slightly more difficult to control.

5. STRINGERS

Choose your preferred number of graphite stringers for added stiffness and durability. The more you have the stiffer the board, which will give more speed but less control. Also bear in mind the water temperature which will have an effect on the boards stiffness, the colder the water the stiffer the board.

6. MESH

Mesh can be added between the core and deck and/or the core and slick for increased stiffness, durability and protection against dings. Please bear in mind that it is not possible to add mesh between the core and deck of a PP board that includes any deck contours.

7. NOSE BULBS

Raised areas in the front corners of the board designed to give increased hand grip. Can be positioned on the deck side or under side of the board.

8. DECK CONTOURS

Contours shaped into the deck designed to improve traction between the rider and the board.

9. CHANNELS

Grooves that run on along the bottom of the board towards the tail, designed to help the board hold the face of the wave and increase control.
