The Making of a Wooden Bellyboard

Our latest film in collaboration with Gokotta Film shares the unique making process that goes into every single wooden bellyboard to create that organic feel and an incomparably likeable aesthetic. The process is a journey from a single sheet of plywood to an alternative surf craft.

Each bellyboard is individually made by hand using the original templates and bending racks that have been used to shape bellyboards for generations by the original Dick Pearce himself.

Follow Jamie, as he takes you from the first cut of plywood through sanding, shaping, bending, spraying, screen printing and finally packaging up and ready to send out.
