To the dedicated surfer the mere touch, feel or even smell of a surfboard evokes senses of excitement, and anticipation. Memories of good sessions, cracking waves, friends, and adventure rush to the front of the cerebrum.
You automatically hold the board up in front of you check out the plan shape, run your cupped hands up and down the rail. Pinch the nose to check out the thickness, stroke your palms and figure tips across the bottom checking out the "v", the concaves, the contours of the planning surface. Finally you put the board on its edge, look at the rocker curve, and see how the volume is positioned? Is this a nice flowing piece of foam? Does it have good foil shape? All this you do in a trance like state as you try to imagine yourself paddling this one out spinning round and catching a wave. Would it work for me? Can I see myself on this thing looking down the line? Will those rails and fins hold in as I jam into that wall on my favourite perfect wave, in the sunshine with my mates hooting?
You snap out of your trance with a few words like 'yeah mate nice one' because no matter that the board is too fat, thin, or just plain ugly your pretty sure that you would do something on it on that 'magical day'.
We at Escape Surfboards know that feeling, we do it all day. We are professional surfboard feelers, we've been doing it for a long time, and we have that autonomy with surfboards. We spend our none working time surfing all over Cornwall and Europe. If it's just a 'quicky', then good old Polzeath our spot only 5 minutes from the factory.
We hope that you will appreciate our attention to detail, smooth lines and crisp edges. This has come about because the time we have passed on and around surfboards.
To some, colour is an important part of their experience, they like to see shapes and designs painted, sprayed, and drawn on their surfboard. We have a huge selection of different graphic ideas which can be used or changed. You may have your own ideas for colour and pattern; we will always be able to apply these to your custom surfboard.
Not only do they make shortboards, retro surfboards, mini mals, fun surfboards, longboards but also specialise in Kite Boards and Stand Up Paddle Boards as well.
