Have been on his site a fair bit watching his vids about his boards and he certainly seems to get it. Has great explanations for all his boards and they all seem to be reasonably priced.

Anyone own one??

Yes his site is fantastic,he is so on with his quality,did you see the clip on the packaging of those 2 boards to the states.
I've seen a couple in the flesh and they don't disappoint.

I would really like to get a pig off of him.

Mike Black (surf a pig blog) seems to be stoked on his.

I have a "The Mal" model Pieter board 9.1' x 22" x 2 3/4". They are a very forgiving board that can be ridden in a HP mode ie: like a shortboard and I have it set up with 6.5" thruster set up and it'll handle anything. On the other hand it has a quite flat nose rocker I'm 95kg and can hang 5 on it (briefly), like any HP mal it will outrun the pocket hence I spend most of my time these days on my 10' noserider unless it gets big.

Board quality is very good and as you'll have seen from Pie Eaters videos he makes the boards by hand all by himself, something I like in my boards. My other mals are from Sam Egan and Mathew Keane who all have the same ethos. You wouldnt go wrong with a Pieter in my humble semi informed opinion.

That one looks a bargain!!!

Haven't surfed but there's one getting round down here and looks siiiiiiiiick!!!
I've looked into these a bit and I'd love a 10' 50's Pig for small/medium slow ones. Love how the Pig sits in the pocket rather than shooting down the line. Be a great noserider on those slower waves...

Problem is i really just don't need another board but if I manage to snap one, this is definitely on the list.

Seems like this style would suit your slower waves too Dave

Hi McHenry

A couple of local lads love them and they are both solid surfers.
They both have his modern style of mal and one of the boys rides his log style board as well.
I just find the amount of concave a bit unusual, not sure! But that's just me.

Last weekend.

10 foot 50's pig on eBay. Pretty pricey considering it's around 1500 new give or take a few options.

Pieter is at Mayfield West in Newcastle. He sounds like he knows what hes talking about. He said to me his team riders have helped him perfect the Easyrider and from the videos i have seen they ride nice.
I love my Sheely HP that i recently picked up but always wanted a big flat noserider. Looking forward to riding a square tail board too. Im not changing anything either, i will juts get the stock job. 9'6" x 24" not sure of thickness. Only change is i want Volan, grey on white.
he also live streams the board build. Does 1 board per week. Starts Monday and pick up Friday

Don't worry Steve. He does know his ****. He may work from is back yard but he is not a backyarder.

Yup, if he is anything like Peter Sheely it will be a cracker. Pieter said he worked with Sheely years ago, sanding his boards. Its just one big happy family here in Newy.
If your wondering, all the coin im throwing at the custom boards has come from the sale of about $5000 worth of brewing, fermenting and beer kegs. After 20 years of hard drinking i hung up my pint glass and am back surfing

Just placed the order today and there will be photos. I took Pieters advice (for a change) and he came up with a std 9'6" x 24" x 3", with square tail and a huge concave in the nose. 60/40 rails and rounded at the rear (log style). 11.25" Shapers Vault fin. My imput was I wanted Volan treated Glass with 1/2, or a slight, grey tint, to show off the laps. 2 x 6oz and a purdy diamond deck patch and 1 x 6oz with a diamond fin patch on bottom.
The shaping will be streamed live on his web site Easter Monday and will be ready to pick up the same Friday.
What a top bloke and gentleman, I could not shut him up. Its the little things that matter to a customer or even a tire kicker. Like I spoke to him for 5 minutes yesterday and said I will think about it. When I rang back today he answered with "Hello Stephen". Such a small thing, to remember my name, but it shows he is a class act. Also he would not take a dollar more than his advertised price for an Easyrider, even with the Volan and tint, he even let me choose my fin.
Cant wait to pick it up.

So excited for you and this board. Watched him shape a 9' fish live. Was awesome! Love his videos. He is doing an awesome easyrider at the moment and just did an insane 50s pig.

Really looking forward to the finished result!
