Cape Carver Shortboard
The thruster set-up is the most popular fin setup in modern surfboards – applied to this wood surfboard it makes for a fast, manoeuvrable and stable board in conditions from 2-6 foot. It holds well in steep, powerful surf and tubes.
As this is a custom order, there is the opportunity for a number of customisations which will be discussed with you once you have placed your order. These include the choice of wood and other finishing features, volume and shape.
Who will make my surfboard?
Your board will be made by Patrick Burnett, who has 15 years of experience in making wooden surfboards. Pat makes his boards under the “one pair of hands” principle. He selects the wood, cuts and prepares it, designs the final shape, builds the wooden structure, shapes it, and finally attends to the glassing and finishing. Being intimately involved with every stage of the process gives him a great deal of control over required customisations and the quality of the final surfboard.
