The WILKO F13 was designed by DHD and Matt Wilkonson to create the ultimate small wave performance shortboard! See more


The Sandman by DHD was developed with versatility in mind. Darren Handley's idea behind this board was to create a performance shortboard that would make surfing effortless for the average person. It is quite adaptable and can be used as a semi step-up surfboard for the regular surfer.

The widest point of the board has been moved up a couple of inches which creates paddle power. However, the beauty of this board is that it didn't lose its trademark DHD Performance.

It holds up in anything from 1-4ft. The wide point has been moved forward adding extra volume in the nose for natural speed and an easy paddle. The smooth outline gets pulled into a tight rounded tail for hold in steep waves and extra response.

The MF twin by DHD has been developed with legendary 3 x World Champion surfer Mick Fanning himself. Since he is no longer on the World Championship Tour he has been experimenting more with surfboards. However, he has been riding twins since he was a grom. He wanted a twin that is fast, able to perform quick snaps in the pocket and have enough hold while carving. It has more rocker and concave than a classic twin fin in order to offer what he wanted. 

Check out the FCS MF Twin Fins specifically designed for this board.

The DX1 PHASE 3 by DHD Surfboards is the latest evolution of the poplular DX1 Jack Freestone The key refinements of the Phase 3 DX1 is a little extra width in the nose and tail as well as more foam under the chest. The rocker is a touch lower and the concave has been reduced allowing it get up and go quicker and be free through turns. Perfect for the softer waves of summer when you want an all rounded shortboard that's going to give you the best performance possible.

The Phoenix is the latest performance shortboard design from Mick Fanning and Darren Handley. Mick has been riding this board in a 5'6" all summer when the waves are up to 4ft and under. Low entry rocker for instant speed but enough lift in the tail that you can confidently rip. The Mick Fanning Phoenix is lightning fast and as high performance as a small wave board can get. If you want to rip and shoot down the line on even the smallest of the days then this is the board for you.

Please Note: Flame spray not included. Please select at step 5.

This is the MF DNA Round Tail high-performance board with the same specifications and design that Mick himself is riding. With a single to double concave through the fins, it has plenty of drive. The MF signature rocker also combines entry rocker with a nice amount of tail kick for plenty of speed.

The DNA Round Tail has been designed and refined by Darren and Mick over the years to really excel in clean, pumping surf. Great for driving and pushing through turns with nice release of its energy and smooth transitions from rail to rail. Surf like Mick does when it's clean and pumping. See more

The Black Diamond EPS is a fan-favorite all-rounder board that can do a bit of everything.

Packed with added flotation to allow for easy paddling and entries but still loaded with all the performance needed when the waves turn on.

Designed with a more pulled in tail to assist in keeping you in the pocket and draw out turns. The widest point is more forward, which increases volume in the nose area and drops the entry rocker slightly. The Black Diamond EPS paddles extremely well and is fast off the front foot.
