At Island Surfboards we have hundreds of years of board making experience all under one roof.

Our onsite factory team provides a full end-to-end custom design service.  

You speak directly with an experienced shaper onsite or over the phone.  

We then tailor a unique design that will get the most out of your surfing.


There are not many places in the world where you can walk straight out the back to a working surfboard factory.

We invite you at anytime to come and inspect your board while it's getting shaped, sprayed and glassed.

The only way to get the right board is direct communication with the shaper and factory team.

We get as big a kick out of designing a board for a beginner as a pro.




'build a relationship with the surfer'

'custom fit the perfect board to their needs and ability'

'maximise wave count and progression in the water'
