Howie Shapes specialise in high-performance custom surfboards to suit all abilities. We take pride in smaller run, locally made boards that deliver an X-factor you’ll struggle to find off the rack.
Our range of models is the result of extensive testing by Howie and his team in a range of quality and not-so-quality conditions. Howie’s innate understanding of how a surfboard works underfoot gives him an advantage when fine tuning boards and communicating with his team riders. It’s this process that allows
Howie to create boards that ‘go’
if it doesn’t work, we won’t offer it
Howie Shapes proudly represents some of the area’s best surfers including super groms Loci and Balin Cullen, Ollie Heintz, Billy Bain as well as Tassie’s Luke Bugg – we love seeing these guys getting results and pushing their surfing on Howie’s (in fact we get excited when we see anyone waxing up a Howie).
