Big Waves demand boards that will make powerful, rugged and difficult surf easier with which to deal. A well designed big wave kneeboard can make the experience exhilarating and joyful. For over 35 years, we’ve steadily refined our big wave kneeboards for that reason. Our main testing grounds are the infamous reefs of  Hawaii’s North Shore on the island of Oahu. Sunset Beach, The Banzai Pipeline, Jocko’s Reef, Laniakea, Haleiwa are but a few of the worlds most challenging surf breaks on this island we call home. Off island the boards have been thoroughly tested in Fiji’s famed Cloud Break, Indonesia’s G-Land Java, Uluwatu Bali and many remote surf breaks along Indonesia’s archipelago. The designs have been ridden on big days at Lennox Head Australia, Jeffrey’s Bay South Africa, Puerto Escondido Mexico, and many other big wave breaks across the planet.

Blast Surf Design’s big wave boards are designed to turn readily, powerfully, smoothly and effectively. The designs incorporate subtleties that smooth out wave face turbulence from wind or unseen forces generated from beneath the wave. These subtleties in design, blend together, to create boards that catch waves easily and provide the rider greater control in  the roughest situations. You will be able to aggressively carve when and where you need to go on the wave. Instead of bouncing and skipping, barely hanging on in survival mode, you can be in command.

Whether you enjoy riding shorter Fish type boards or longer “Gun” type boards, we have the right designs, tried and true. With these designs you will confidently take on the worlds greatest big wave venues.
