about us

We are a small UK company based in Porthcawl, we do not mass produce boards, all our boards are ridden by local surfers so we always ensure that there are no imperfections before they leave the factory.

Every new custom order surfboard is hand finished from begining to end. There are NO MACHINES involved !!!

The process starts wth Paul "The Gill" hand shaping the blank and only when he is happy he passes the board to Alby who takes over spraying, laminating, sanding and polishing your board to perfection.

Between both Paul and Alby we can offer you over 50 years of experience in the Surfboard industry.

All our surfboards are made from best quality materials, we never use cheap seconds or cheap resin/glass.

Anyone wishing to have a hand made/custom surfboard is offered the best advice and we aim to realise your best expectations for the perfect new surfboard. We encourage prospective clients to come to the factory for a one-to-one consultation before ordering. For those surfers who can not come to see us, you are welcome to ring and we will supply you with an order form.

A Brief History of Odd Surfboards
Odd Custom Surfboards started manufacturing in November 1997 in the old Session Surfboard Factory in South Cornelly, in which I manufactured Session custom surfboards for five years. Prior to that I have been in the surfboard trade for 34 years and my shaper, Paul Gill aka "The Gill" for 31 years, between us clocking up a lot of experience.

Quality Materials
We use environmentally friendly British blanks, we also use Top Foam on occasion which a good quality blank from South Africa. The resin is isothalic (Iso 7X) and we use first class quality 4oz and 6oz glass.

First Class Service
We, at Odd Surfboards, try to give our customers as much help as possible, from competition surfers to the complete novice. We can do an old favourite board, retro boards or make a new board to any specification from a lightweight competition board to a strong lasting board.

Freelap is our trade name. Our boards go under the logos of Classics for the retro malls and Odd boards which are our main logo. We also provide a professional repair service.

Paul Gill (shaper), travels around the world and has gained a vast knowledge of all types of boards.

Custom artwork is no problem, for extra-special requests we will bring in Artworks by Chris Gadd - world renown airbrush artist, who can spray whatever you desire.
