The Royal Long Board
This hollow wooden longboard is the grandest of the quiver. There’s a unique stoke to riding a big board – the increased volume offers superior paddle power, while the combination of wood and a gentle rocker delivers a momentum and glide that is unique to boards in this class. And if you’re not riding it, the beauty of wood displayed over 11′ is hard to beat.
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 of required customisations and the quality of the final product.
Time to delivery
8-10 weeks, depending on location.
Typically 11′ plus, between 23″ and 24″ wide and 3-4″ thick depending on the requirements of whoever it is being made for.
As above, this is a custom-made item and the volume will be adjusted according to the unique specifications of whoever it is being made for. The top end of the volume range can reach 120 litres.
This longboard is available as a glass-on single fin or with a 10″ single fin box. It can also be made as a thruster.
