One-off Predn Bobba ('Idiot' in Cornish) shortboard.
Width: 20 3/8"
Thickness: 2 9/16"
5 fin boxes, for thruster or quad setup
Predn board #38, the Bobba, has a traditional shortboard shape with minimal rocker for speed and ease of paddling. It’s got plenty of concave, built for smaller waves or bigger people. It’s super light, fast and fun, weighing in at about 2.5kg. With its rounded square tail, this board is awesome for all turns and manoeuvres and is quick on the take-off. The Bobba catches the eye with its neon pink rails.
Predn, meaning 'wood' in Cornish, is our trademark construction, the one that best encapsulates our three pillars of performance, sustainability and accessibility. The super thin marine ply veneer on the deck adds incredible toughness, practically eradicating compression dings, as well as a beautiful wooden aesthetic, each board having its own unique grain. The fin boxes are reinforced with flax cloth, an all-natural material with similar properties to carbon fibre. Even with the reinforcements, the Predn construction remains light, responsive and totally shreddable.
All our constructions use an expanded polystyrene (EPS) core. Unlike traditional polyurethane (PU), this doesn’t degrade or yellow with UV exposure, neither does it take on water if the skin gets damaged. We glass our boards with bio epoxy resin, which is less harmful than traditional resins. We hand-make our leash plugs using Cornish applewood and a brass pin, which ages beautifully without losing its integrity. All our boards are hand-shaped with love and pride in our wind-powered workshop in Cornwall.
