The Skeleton is a high performance squash tail shortboard, shaped to honour the longest and deepest barrels on the African continent, Skeleton Bay. The Skeleton is shaped by Legendary South African shaper, Hugh Thompson, who has been turning out boards since the early 70s. The Skeleton refines elements from all eras of modern surfboard design to create a shortboard that delivers speed and control under your feet, whether you’re holding a line deep in the guts of a wave or boosting high above it. Speed and flow, The Skeleton is the optimal modern surfboard.

The board will be custom shaped to your specific requirements by Hugh in Jeffreys Bay. Because each board is custom shaped and finished, they can take up to 8 weeks to deliver. Once your order is placed we’ll email to confirm the following details with you:

  • level of surfing experience - high, medium, low
  • weight
  • height 
  • any special info or requirements

We will then confirm within a week the estimated delivery date of your board.
We deliver door to door within South Africa. Packing and delivery is R650. Or they can be collected direct from Hugh’s workshop. 
Once the order and custom details are confirmed we will send you a complimentary bag of Mami Wata ‘Congo Black’ coffee to enjoy while you wait.
