The Classic Surfer 'Premium Lightweight Model'

£5 OFF OUR CLASSIC SURFERS SO NOW £50 INSTEAD OF £55.
OH, AND A FREE NAME DECAL TOO (NORMALLY £15)!!!

The Traditional Surfing Co 'Classic Surfer' is the timeless Cornish Bellyboard, exactly the same as has been surfed and enjoyed on West Country beaches for generations. It is truly a tried and tested bellyboard shape that we have honed even further in our workshop to offer even greater ease of wave catching and longer thrilling rides.

Made from premium hand selected strong yet lightweight wood, almost half the weight of cheaper plywood boards, our Classic Surfers stick to the proven 4ft long x 12" wide dimension that is common to all quality bellyboards, the thickness is 9mm to give great flex which is essential to a quality bellyboard and also instead of tapering the tail down to 11" as some do we have kept the 12" width all the way through as we find that it maximises planing surface thus making it easier to catch waves and enjoy long rides.

The nose is rounded and has a smooth lift that is neither too steep to cause it to be slow nor too shallow to cause the nose to catch, in a word its the perfect curve for a wooden bodyboard like this that we've developed over the last 4 years of making wooden bodyboards.

Even the tail has been refined over the years, we don't just round of the corner. Its a more curved tail shape, originally templated from a 1950's board we have in our collection that is especially beatifully shaped, and we found that this little design tweak allows the board to carve gracefully through the turns with great grip.

Handmade by ourselves in Cornwall each Classic Surfer is made individually from carefully selected lightweight hardwood veneers, chosen for stunning grain pattern and quality. The boards we then laminate ourselves, utilizing the finest waterproof glue available, in our custom made presses in order to guarantee that each one has the perfect nose lift for ultimate surfing performance. Not only is this process advantageous for consitency over a steam bent or boiled and bent board because they can never be made with a specific nose lift and often come out over bent, but also that the very nature of heating pre-glued sheets in order to make them bend weakens the very fabric of the wood itself.

Further adding to the quality and craftsmanship the boards also feature hand screenprinted graphics and they are finished with a soft as silk satin custom blend waterproof finish that after many years of making boards we feel offers not only superb protection for the wood but also stunningly enhances all the natural beauty of the board's grain patterns.
 

Board Personalisation: If you are looking to make your board that little bit more special, either for yourself or as a gift, we now offer a name decal option for just £15. For this we will custom make and apply up on the nose of the board a vinyl decal in gloss black to match the main board logo. But of course, if you want the ultimate unique board then check out of full custom design and screenprint option in which we take your design, or work with one of our great graphics, to give you a hand printed board that will be simply stunning.
