Tim Stafford Surfboards

Mostly bonzer inspired creations, made in Cornwall. Designed, shaped, glassed, sanded, finned and finished by Tim Stafford.

I make boards that are easy to ride, that feel natural under foot. Most aren't conventional but they will help you reach that point where you stop thinking about what's under your feet and start to focus on where you want to go and how you want to get there. Why bonzers?

Always happy to chat about your needs and what would work for you but please initiate contact by email or Facebook... details on www.timstaffordsurfboards.com | Ride and glide.

Paulownia good vibes…


Got some Paulownia wood endowed with huge amounts of good vibes… this wood has done the rounds and will shortly be making fine sets of bonzer sides. Not sure of the original source but they were sent to Rob Lion, Royal Surfboards, who left them with Chris Hartop when he left the England, who felt the wood was well suited to some of my bonzers… so thanks to the source for sending them to Rob, to Rob for giving them to Chris, and to Chris for giving them to me…

Oh and that is Chris’s hand-plane he has lent me to get me back in the water doing something until my knee gets fixed.

Burleigh Boardriders

Love the wave, and was lucky enough to be cut some slack by the Burleigh Boardriders back in 1984… 18 years old, traveling and looking for waves. Some of the boys made me welcome and got me into the odd cyclone swell set wave… long time ago, long overdue thanks and respect.

Here’s a nice little vid about an annual event they hold…
