Real wood veneered deck for flex and durability.

The Bobba is a high volume shortboard designed for ease of paddling and high wave count. It adores smaller waves, but can still hold its own on bigger swells, due to its speed. It’s ideal for someone moving down in size from a mini mal, or the experienced surfer looking for a small wave go-to board. It’s super lightweight and strong sustainable construction. Hand crafted in North Cornwall, and the rocker, template and volume distribution are perfectly tweaked for ease of use and manoeuvrability. Especially in Cornish/UK (style) waves.
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 is it affected by 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.
Prices do not include delivery. As the cost of this is changing all the time we will have to arrange this once the order is completed, pick up from the shop is free and can be arranged for pretty much anytime. This is also the safest option, many a board has been broken in the back of a delivery van!
