Surf's up for Santa!

Surf's up for Santa!

With a year that has flown by, it’s no surprise that we’re 8 weeks out from Christmas. We’re on the cusp of the festive season and summer holidays, so it’s only natural to start thinking about gift-giving and summer activities.  

To help you out, here is our round-up of Christmas present ideas…

~ A Bywater surfboard kit…Make your own wooden surfboard at home! A great activity to sink your teeth into for the holiday break and reward yourself with a new surfboard at the end. Our surfboard kits are a fantastic activity for the family, involving the kids or joining forces with a mate. With eight different surfboards to choose from (in varying lengths and timber patterns), there is a perfect surfboard for everyone.  

~ For a smaller, shorter project - consider a body surfing timber handboard. Hit the surf immediately with a fully made and shaped handboard or purchase a blank and start shaping yourself for a rewarding experience. 

~ Elevate your surfboard and make a statement with our timber surfboard stand, a unique but practical gift. Made from solid New Guinea Rosewood, with two sizes available. 

~ For an extra extra special gift, our selection of ready-made timber surfboards are set to impress. View our selection of ‘Essentials’ and ‘Collectors’ Edition surfboards, professionally handcrafted and ready for adventure with its new owner.  

~ Our timber curved block plane makes for a charming present for the woodworker in the family. Made in-house from birch plywood, featuring brass pin and hardened steel blade.  

~ Don’t forget to check out our merchandise, the “Don’t forget the bung” cotton tshirts and “Bywater Surf” caps making great stocking fillers.
