Here at The Traditional Surfing Co, the home of Cornish Bellyboarding, we make environmentally
friendly, traditionally inspired, wooden bellyboards that are fun to surf, give longer
more exhilarating rides than foam bodyboards and are the perfect bellyboarding surfboards
for the whole family to enjoy.
We take our inspiration from the classic bellyboards that have been surfed on Cornish
beaches from as far back as the early 1900s, and although a rare sight today bellyboards
are highly sought after by a small number of dedicated bellyboarders who cherish
them for the alternative surfing experience they offer.
Based upon a family tradition of bellyboard making that goes back to the 1930’s the
bellyboards we make today are all individually crafted in our West Cornwall workshop.
We take hand selected pieces of FSC certified wood stock, and laminate it ourselves
in a custom made press to ensure our bellyboards have the perfect amount of nose
lift for the best possible bellyboarding performance, Finally we hand screen-print
the logos and finish the bellyboards with a special waterproof satin finish that
both protects the wood and enhances its natural beauty.
So not only do you get a wooden bellyboard that is handmade here in West Cornwall
from renewable resources, you also get a bellyboard that become a part of the family
and if treated with love and care can be passed down through the generations. Something
you can surf, your children can surf and maybe even their kids too.
