Made in Australia, but nothing comes back on a forum search. Does anyone here have any experience with their SUP surfing boards? Lots of pics on Instagram in pretty heavy stuff. Mostly interested in quality and durability concerns. Very little info out there...

Didn't know them. Seems a quite legit really OZ-based shaper.

Here is a interesting presentation video:



There dyneema + high density EPS models could be interesting durability-wise, but the catch could be the weight, if it is important for you, as they are not PVC sandwich.

I doubt that they are made in Australia.

Shaped and glassed in Australia. Newcastle NSW. I don't know where they source their materials, but "M" grade EPS was specified, which is an Australian medium density (19kg/m3) grade (SL/S/M/H/VH). They're pretty proud of the fact that they're #aussiemade. I've seen pics of people charging big, hollow waves in Oz and Indo.
