About the Gould Pin 6'8", 7'2" or 7'8"

The Gould inspired by the 70’s single fins has a full blunt pointed nose, the widest point forward of halfway, a flattish bottom with chined rails and a very slight vee in the tail. It will rip at Lennox and Angourie, and any other empty point break on the Aussie coastline!! The Gould creates a comfortable mix for barrel riding, vertical off-the-lips and classic bottom turns. Combined with easy to paddling gets you in early and smooth reliability and a truly classic feel. Sweet!

  • You can build your own custom board either 6'8", 7'2" or 7'8" x 22 1/4" x 2 3/4"
  • Weight: your board should end up at under 1kg per foot depending on your external finish
  • Suits waves 2' - 6'

    Should I buy the Premium Kit or Customised DIY Kit?

    Simply; the Premium Kit is recommended for Beginners/Intermediate and first time board makers, while the DIY Customised Kit is recommended to experienced woodworkers or someone who has attended one of our in person courses. The Premium Kit has more inclusions with materials that are pre-prepped, eliminating the need to have access to certain machinery, reducing prep time and allows you to jump straight into the frame assembly.

    The DIY Customise kit includes the bare bones un-prepped materials with more scope to customise and truly ‘do-it-yourself.’  You will be making your board from scratch with more scope to customise your board and use the 1:1 paper plans as guide.

    Both kits will include our comprehensive step by step Instruction guide in PDF format.

    Across our 8 different surfboard styles, you can choose either Premium Kit or DIY Customised Kit, depending on your needs.


      Item  Description
      Plastic Leash Plug The plastic leash plug is a standard plug easily glued into any surfboard, once the glue if off the plug is then sanded down flush with the board to glass the board, we only supply the black plug.
      Brass Leash Plug

      Stuart designed this Brass leash for not only practical purposes but for an easy install into hollow boards to glue in with very little clean up after. The top flange is only 1 mm thick so with the glass and resin on the deck it easily becomes flush when it is sanded flush and buffed.

      In a beautiful wall hanger, it definitely adds that bling that comes with glossy timber and shiny brass. If left unfinished or used a lot it will tarnish giving the board an old school nautical vibe

      Brass Vent

      If you want a vent and chose a brass leash plug then a brass vent is for you. 

      You do not need a vent if you have a bung and every board needs a bung, but it will give you time carrying your board in the heat before you need to take the bung out, allowing you to walk back around to that point before you jump off the rocks back for another wave, or you hope out of the water take the bung out, walk out to the point put the bung back in and off  you go, your decision whatever works for you and where you surf .

      140 Pack of Pegs

      These pegs are you extra light clamps for your rails, I have tried a few brands and sizes but I have found these give the best pressure and last the longest.


      We will supply you with enough paper to sand your board rails, decks and a design for an easy to make sanding board for your desks, I also show you the best way to sand your board in the video tutorials.

      Safety Glasses

      You only need one eye to see, but two to really look

      Take care of your eyes, the resins, fiberglass and glues can easily destroy your eyes if you get dust or fibres in them, if you don’t buy these glasses please make sure you get some from somewhere.

      Dust Mask

      The paulownia dust is very fine and can choke your lungs when sanding it, I leave the sanding till the end and probably only sand the timber when the board is finished and for about 3 hours. Once the resin is on the timber the board is then sanded again the resin dust is not good for you so please where a mask of some sort.


      Our "Wave Of Tradition" Tees
