The House Of Byrne.

Established in our factory on Saturdays with Ian and his son Jacob Byrne over a few cold beers is how it all started. Re touching on a design Ian used during his competitive years as a young surfer in New Zealand.

Winding it back to the origins of the Curve Channel.

Ian looked up to the likes of Craftsmen Bob Davies who taught Ian’s brother A.B and Rodney Dalhberg to shape, and in the later years Wayne Lowen, Tony Waterhouse and Greg Seal.

During this time in the 70’s at Bobs factory, Ian’s Father Des Byrne was the main Glasser and experienced firsthand Bobs experimentation with new shapes and creating the concept of curving the channels out to the rail line.

Fast forward to 2018 Ian and his son Jacob started to come up with new concepts and designs to handshape together as father and Son projects and during this period Ian re lit the spark on the curve channel.

They decided to adjust the outline to become a fuller twin fin curve with a lower pinched modern rail. The boys refined each board they shaped together and signed off on the final curves and outlines after many boards made and surfed in all conditions on the Coast to truly refine the boards

These boards we call “The House of Byrne” made with passion and plenty of hours in the bay Hand shaping.

Designed with a single concave under chest leading into a rolled Vee through the shaped curve channels allow maximum speed generation and pivot due to the reduced rail width through tail, creating a fluent curve around the fin area.

This created a fast, speed generating board with versatility in a modern Twin but also created control on carving arcs at high speed due to the channel design.

Also, They incorporated a flatter nose entry rocker and wider template to allow greater foam distribution under the chest plate adding to the ease of catching waves and fluent feel away from the pocket.

Glassed in fins we make to suit each individual board in house.

Note: We do not use litres when shaping channel bottoms as the tools required to make channels are done by a craftsman not by machines.
