2. 5′.8″ classic-styled hollow wood twin-fin fish

5.8AbaloneFishThis is a 5′.8″ classic-styled hollow wood twin-fin fish in Western Red Cedar and Obeche with real abalone inlays and custom-made glass-on fins. It’s a celebration of a surfboard shape that has endured for nearly 50 years. Handcrafted and taking inspiration from the fish shapes of the early 1970s, the special feature of this board are the abalone inserts along the bottom that separate the two different types of wood, the one light and the other dark in colour. The abalone lines have a mother-of-pearl luminosity to them that is accentuated by the rich colours of the wood. This is a one-of-a-kind board, a piece of functional art. Despite being shorter than today’s typical shortboards, the fish paddles beautifully and catches waves easily. As wood surfboards go, this one is a beauty.                

PRICE: R10,500, excluding shipping. SOLD Contact burnett.patrick@gmail.com to order a similar board.

3. 9’6″ Classic Single Fin Gun

Classic-Single-Fin-Gun-00-800x1021This beautiful hollow wood gun is handmade from Japanese Cedar with a light “burnt wood” stain that darkens the grain but at the same time accentuates the quality of the wood. It has bright coloured inserts made from pieces of driftwood running down the centre stringer line on the deck.

PRICE: R16,000 SOLD Contact burnett.patrick@gmail.com to order a similar board.

  1. Very cool boards!
    Do you have any others for sale, all say sold on the site.
    The 5.8 classic style wood twin fin is what I would want.

    • Hi Jeff,

      Thanks very much for your interest. Yes, the boards on the site are sold, but I can make you a fresh fish if you’re happy to wait about 4 weeks. The advantage would be that you get to choose the wood look that you would like to go into the board. They cost R8,500 for a custom build. Let me know if you would like to take that route and I’ll give you a call to discuss.

      Best regards,

  2. Been bodysurfing for 35 years now never took to standing up have a large collection of hand planes starting with Johnson Hand Gun still a favorite but interested in buying new shapes where in Cape Town could I buy one?

    • Hi, and thanks for your comment on my site – stoked to hear from someone that has been bodysurfing for so long!

      I make and sell hand planes, mostly to order, so if you have a particular shape in mind then let me know, or feel free to pop into my workshop in Scarborough to discuss. I also run courses where you can make your own hand plane. There’s more info about this on my website

      Best regards,
