Hand made custom surfboards. Surfboar ds repairs. HardLine surfboards was started becau se I was fed up with buyi ng a surfboard and it didnt deliv er what I hoped.
Being a tradesman I decided to ha ve a go and make a boa rd. That started my passion for maki ng the best board I can. Cust om orders means I create a boa rd for an individual and to the ir requirements. Each board gets 100% ha nd made from start to finish. Tradition al methods are used as much as possib le and this ensures you get t he best I can deliver. Life's to sho rt to be sitting on the cou ch.

This shapers gauze is decades o ld (black one). When new they r ip into the foam and leave a b it of abrasive stuff on they fo am. They age and get better. Smooth er and softer in the hand wh en using it.
