Why get a custom surfboard?
Because matching your board to your skills and the waves you surf makes a world of difference. We’ve been shaping for Raglan surfers over two decades, and know what boards work best for the conditions out here.
With the surfboard industry being dominated by a few major brands and manufacturing being outsourced to Thailand and China, we’ve seen degrading quality in both materials used and glossing jobs over the past years. In contrast, Comenzind sources only highest quality materials and shapes your board here in Raglan from start to finish.
Mark has been surfing the points of Raglan pretty much all his life and knows the waves inside out. He’s been shaping his first board in 1991 and since then has been refining his surfboards for the local waves. Unlike global surfboard brands, we make boards that excell in local conditions.
When you start working with a shaper, you benefit from a wealth of knowledge that the sales person at the surf shop often simply doesn’t have. Over time you build a relationship with someone who truly understands your surfboard preferences and is able to make that magic board for you – over and over again.
