History

A family tradition since 1956, Bennett Surfboards has been in the surfboard business longer than any other Australian manufacturer. Currently celebrating our 60th Anniversary.

Surf Life Saving introduced Racing Malibu’s to Australian Titles in paddle board races and iron man competitions in 1962 and with longboards, was incorporated into Bennett’s surfboard production.

Bennett’s has always maintained its strong roots in the Surf Life Saving environment.

And for the last 40 years, has supplied thousands of paddle board and rescue boards to overseas and local clubs.

The Bennett name is highly valued amongst the Surf Life Saving fraternity and many Australian and World Titles have been won on Bennett boards.
