Custom Surfboards

Welcome to the new home of JB Watercraft Design. We offer a range of Do-It-Yourself designs for boats and stand up paddle boards.


We also offer a custom surfboard design and build service and can tailor a board to taste and surfing style. 

My passion lies in creating boats and boards that are affordable, practical, easy to build and most of all fun. 

JB Watercraft Design specializes in thinking outside the box and I see little point in following conventions and designing what has already been done before. 

Based in the watersports paradise of Auckland, New Zealand, my designs have all been rigorously tested on local waters in a variety of conditions and are proven in their capabilities. Close to 50 boats of my design have been sold to date.
