9’1”  x  22  1/2”  x  2  3/4”

Ian Chisholm


The “Blank Cheque” model has been Designed and Developed with Craig Harvey, then shaped and crafted by Ian Chisholm.
“Just like an everyday Blank Cheque this board will open up a world of possibilities. Surf it traditionally and Noseride it in the pocket followed by trim and flow. Then when opportunity arises spice it up with a little float or carve, to link your tip rides together with style”.
“The ‘Blank Cheque’ gives you confidence and options when dealing with oncoming sections or closeouts with speed and flow”~ Craig Harvey.
So go grab The “Blank Cheque” and fill the rest in yourself.

Hot Buttered 8’0” Malibu

8’0”  x  22 3/8”  x  2  3/4” 


The HB Funboard, Malibus and Longboards Models are designed to perform in quick beach breaks that most of us surf day to day. Slightly fuller rails combine with extra rocker throughout so these Cadillacs maneouver quickly off the tail. Slight concave under the nose adds to entry speed and trailer side fins to versatility and holding power on the tip or, under back-foot pivot power.

Bob Brown Log – $1580

9’8” x  23 1/2”  x  3”


The 67’ log by Doug Bell- A personal favourite. Ideally surfed in waves up to shoulder high, this board really excels on the nose. Slight vee through the tail allows you transition rail to rail with ease, bringing back some old school flavour!

Tolhurst Log

9’4” Tolhurst Log



14th August 2017


The HiHp RDS is a slightly wider version of the original HiHp with a little more support in the back half.

For a lot of years Harley’s boards were being tuned to suit really hollow waves and the ASP World Longboard Tour at the time were powerful locations like southern France, Hawaii, Peru, Costa Rica and the Maldives where Harley won his first World Title. More recently we found the need to cater for not so powerful waves also with the longboard tour moving to the weaker wind swells of Italy and China, so we started to rework our planshape curve to be more supportive in average waves.

The rocker, bottom shape, rail style and fin setup have remained the same.
