Surfboard shaping is an art form and not many surfboard manufacturers can honestly say that that they are involved in every step – start to finish.
Dave Farrow, of Many Returns Surfboards in Newquay is one of these few people and is proud to shape boards that work, and are well suited to the waves and conditions we get in the UK.
This short documentary shows the processes involved in making a surfboard and gives you an insight in to the Many Returns Surfboard brand. It is clear to see that it takes a lot of time, effort and patience to get to the finished products that we stock.
“I generally make my boards for learner and intermediate surfers, which tend to be wider and thicker and with fuller rails, without too much edge”
The extra width and thickness makes the boards much more stable when paddling and gives a more solid platform when paddling in to waves and popping up.
The softer edge on these boards gives added forgiveness when turning, helping you not to catch a rail and fall off mid-turn, making Many Returns surfboards perfect for learner – intermediate surfers, with focus put on easy wave catching and a great balance of stability and manoeuvrability once on the wave.
