Austin 7'5" Hollow Wooden Surfboard

A lovingly hand crafted and hand shaped Wooded Surfboard by Cornish Boat Builder and craftsman Phil Austin
The Austin 7'5" Hallow is based on a classic 70s “Egg” design this board makes a great all round ride for an intermediate surfer or a step up for an expert surfer to ride on mellower breaks or smaller days.

Being wider than the average board coupled with the mid length and plenty of volume in the mid section give ease of paddling and gets into the wave earlier than a modern shorter board.

A single concave in the nose transitions into a neutral mid section and double concave through the fins to encourage water flow past fins for drive and control, a rounded pintail with hard rails gives a good level of hold in steeper waves.

Classic rail set up, 50/50 in nose, to 60/40 mid section, to hard down rail in tail.

Two plus one fin set up with 10.5” centre box allows experimentation with different combinations to suit your riding style.

Suits a laid back down the line/sweeping lines style of surfing as opposed to shortboard hacking. Let out your inner soul surfer!

Goes well in our often less than powerful surf.
