HWSurfboards are delighted that Sponsored rider Luke Dillon, English U14 champion 2008/9 has decided to try the old skool HWS boards. We are building Luke a board similar to his own sponsored board. Lukes board is a 5' 11" shortboard using a combination of Balsa, European Beech & Iroko on the decks, with Cork & Ply for the rails.

We will be capturing and sharing details of the board being built along with news of the launch.

Please see progress photos of the build. All photos are courtesy of Catchawave Online Surf Video & Photos

Its great for us that a young influential surfer like Luke wants to try one of our Wooden boards. Luke is aware of the importance of low impact surfing and we are looking forward to his feedback on the performance value of a Wooden board against its Foam equivilant.

Please check out the next instalment with further build pics and more info on the project. More details will be available at HWSurfboards.com
