At Shogun Surfing, we pay great attention to details to not only the technical aspects of our surfboards or stand up paddleboards, such as the rocker, volume and durability, but also the treatment of the graphics/ design of the boards.

With our handmade Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP), instead of the bamboo looking plastic veneer, we have lavishly used real bamboo strips on both deck and bottom of the boards. The natural wood grains of the bamboo is not only visually pleasing, it makes the boards lighter and also adds to the strength and durability of the boards. This requires concentration and steady hands to painstakingly secure the bamboo strips onto the boards before sealing in with fiberglass for added strength and protection against the elements.

Bright colours are used on the rail and for the traction pad. In our current range, the traction pad is a two toned design with 2 contrasting colours, this again requires detailed work as the two different colours of traction pads are cut to intricate shapes and patched together, it is extremely demanding as the shapes of the pads must match our design accurately and the diamond pattern of the pad need to be aligned precisely.
Although details like this may be easily replaced by spray painting one single piece of traction pad, but we have decided to demonstrate our attention to details through even the slightest differences in the finishing touches.
