The Skom is a fun 5’8 Single Fin Pod shape, designed to honour the waves of Kommetjie on the  Cape Peninsula. This easy retro shape with modern lines and contours has enough volume to give small days at the Inner or Long Beach loads of potential for easy, enjoyable sessions. The board will hold up to around 4 foot, or as big as you’re keen to test it, delivering a ride that’s both technical and different. Shaped by legendary South African shaper, Hugh Thompson, with more than 17 000 hand-shaped boards under his belt, The Skom might just be your next magic carpet.

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.
