The Traditional Surfing Co is a growing family run business based in West Cornwall.
We individually hand make all our wooden bellyboards, bodyboards and handplanes,
we silk screen print all our clothing and posters and we also produce an eclectic
ever changing range of beach themed accessories and do-dads.
Our bellyboards are based
upon a family tradition of making wooden bodyboards that dates back to the 1930's,
and from the outset our goal was to seek inspiration from the classic alaia, paipo
and bellyboards but bring these ancient forms of wooden bodyboarding and bellyboarding
into the modern age with improved user friendliness, performance and indeed enjoyment.
Our belief is that bellyboards and bodyboards made from wood offer a serious and
indeed sensible alternative to foam and polystyrene made bodyboards in that wood,
by its very nature, is a renewable resource, is recyclable and even compostable.
Not only that, we would argue that wood bellyboards also out perform foam ones. Wooden
bellyboards catch waves with more ease, are faster and surf further. Bellyboarding
is pure and natural fun!
Our aim from the outset was to deliver unbeatable quality, performance and value,
and we stick to that. As a result the Traditional Surfing Co has grown rapidly to
become recognised as the leading maker of bellyboards in the UK and we are confident
to say that no-one equals our product. So if you are looking for an unrivalled and
thoroughly fun surfing experience for the whole family you have definitely come to
the right place.
