Here at The Traditional Surfing Co we make environmentally friendly wooden bodyboards that are fun to surf, easier to surf than stand up boards and can be enjoyed by the whole family.

We take our inspiration from the classic bellyboards that have been surfed on Cornish beaches from as far back as the early 1900s, and although a rare sight today they are highly sought after by a small number of dedicated enthusiasts who cherish them for the alternative surfing experience they offer.

All our boards are individually crafted in our West Cornwall workshop from hand selected pieces of FSC certified wood stock, they are laminated in our custom made press, we hand screen-print the logos and finish the boards with a special mix of natural oils that both protects and nourishes the wood.

So not only do you get a board that is handmade in Cornwall from renewable resources, has an environmentally sensitive finish, is recyclable and heck, should you wish even compostable, it is also a board that is a little bit different and will out perform, in terms of wave catching ease, length of ride and even surfing sensation, any far eastern factory made foam bodyboard.

But perhaps the best thing is that they are boards that become a part of the family and if treated with love and care can be passed down through the generations. Something you can surf, your children can surf and maybe even their kids too.


We offer a unique handprinted custom graphic option on all
our wooden bodyboards and bellyboards.
