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.

Jason (glassing) used to work with Martin back when he was a young’un learning the ropes,so was stoked to be working on an Outer Limits. Jase threw up one dilemma though – fixed fin or box? Heart says fixed, head says box!

No wonder…

I was showing my 3 1/2 year old daughter the latest Surfers Journal the other day and she really didn’t like the pictures… I would say “wow, you like that one?”, she would say “no!” “no!” – that was until she got to a picture of a girl surfing. She screamed with delight and said “that’s really good Daddy”.

In that instance I realised how gender biased surfing is, how at such a young age what she sees has such a profound impact on her engagement with what I love, wave riding.

So here is a picture of a long time friend of mine, “pickney gurl” Imani Wilmot, Jamaica. Check out more of her stuff at her Facebook page. Any media people reading this… if you want your daughters to surf… start giving them a bit more presence!
