The Rhino Big Wave Gun
The big wave gun is arguably one of the most iconic shapes in surfing. Making a big wave gun out of wood produces an aesthetically magnificent surfboard, and an exploration of the design parameters that enable the surfboard and rider to take on the full power and size of big waves.
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.
