We’re Changing The Way We Ship Cloth

For those of you who like to get their hand right into the fundamentals of surfboards through either shaping their own board or doing a few ding repairs themselves, we decided to incorporate your needs.

When shaping a surfboard, the DIY shaper much prefers when cloth is shipped in a roll. The reason being, once the board has been shaped and is ready for fibreglassing, it’s far easier (and neater) to unravel a roll of fibreglass (cloth) directly on to the blank, as opposed un folding meters of cloth (depending on board size).

However, the person who want’s a couple of metres for some minor repairs, may not have to unravel such a length and instead will take small clips of cloth to cover the damaged area.

As a result we’ve given you the option of buying cloth either:

Cloth Folded – 

For repairs on boards.

Cloth floded will be cheaper to ship, costing £2.95 “Standard Shipping”, unless you order over £35 worth, then shipping is free. Other instances where you may pay more is for “Special Delivery”, which will cost you £9.95 (this is usually next day if ordered before 12pm). Please see our Delivery & Returns.

OR:

On A Roll

For shaping you own board.

Cloth on a roll will cost you £10.00 to ship, whether you order 1m or 100m. However, if you order cloth on a roll with blanks, you will only pay for the cost of shipping the blank. Shipping 1-2 blanks from 6’3″ – 7’10” is £19.95, and shipping 1-2 blanks from 8’5″ to 10’3″ will cost £34.95. Please see our Delivery & Returns.

Obviously, if you’re shaping a board and are not really bothered how your cloth comes, feel free to order your cloth folded.
