We offer a unique handprinted custom graphic option on all our wooden bodyboards and bellyboards. CLICK HERE to find out more.
Here at The Traditional Surfing Co, the home of Cornish Bellyboarding, we make environmentally
friendly, traditionally inspired, wooden bellyboards that are fun to surf, give longer
more exhilarating rides than foam bodyboards and are the perfect surfboards for the
whole family to enjoy.
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.
Based upon a family tradition of bellyboard making that goes back to the 1930’s the
bellyboards we make today are all individually crafted in our West Cornwall workshop.
We take hand selected pieces of FSC certified wood stock, and laminate it ourselves
in a custom made press to ensure our boards have the perfect amount of nose lift
for the best possible surfing performance, Finally we hand screen-print the logos
and finish the boards with a special waterproof satin finish that both protects the
wood and enhances its natural beauty.
So not only do you get a board that is handmade here in West Cornwall from renewable
resources, you also get something 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.
