8'6" TO 11’

The Continental is a new model with very old roots. I started with the 1" redwood stringer I salvaged many years ago from an old 60's Jacobs 10'4" longboard and got the boys Burford Blanks to glue their 10'2" blank up to that rocker. I've been studying old traditional logs and experimenting to get the perfect combination of that classic feel: that paddle, glide and run, blended with a more user-friendly turning and change of direction feel. I wanted to make a big board that could be safely ridden in a crowd, something that felt big but didn't "ride you". This is a really great board that is very traditional but with some subtle modern refinements that make it a joy to ride. 


This model is available in your choice of:

•    Tint
•    Opaque
•    Semi-opaque
•    Swirl
•    Clear


Bryan uses Burford Blanks exclusively, Silmar Polyester resin, and top quality fibreglass including Volan and “S” cloth. This construction allows for a board which can last 20+ years if looked after properly. This is the recommended build, although EPS/Epoxy builds are possible if flotation is your primary concern.


  • $160 per foot, any resin colours/design included. I can not accommodate for external/customer supplied artwork or airbrushing designs. $300 deposit gets your board underway. Balance due upon completion. Discount available on total for cash sales.

  • $150 for single box or glassed in fin, multiple fin setups vary in cost. All fins handmade by Bryan. All fins besides centre long boxes are glassed on. No fcs boxes..fuck them..

  • 10% of board and fin cost for GST added to total.

  • Pick up preferred, or Shipping must be arranged and paid for by Customer. Surf Cargo or Surf Freight are preferred Courier agents.


Please allow 6-8 weeks for your your board to be made. Blank delivery for custom glue ups can take up to 3 weeks. Your board is handshaped, glassed, sanded and finished entirely by Bryan and are made in the order it comes up in the queue. If you need your board by a certain date before 6-8 weeks from paying your deposit, add $250 for a rush order.
