Q and A's From Joel Fitzgerald Surfboards

Joel Fitzgerald Surfboards Handmade in Australia

At Joel Fitzgerald Surfboards, we are committed to riding out the difficulty of the pandemic in a positive way. Like many of us, you will be spending time surfing locally this coming season and would like the feeling of a new surfboard to keep you stoked, and in some cases, sane. Here are the four main questions we are asked regarding our surfboard manufacturing and delivery this Spring and Summer.

Why are our lead times 12 - 14 weeks?

Demand for our boards has increased 300% over the last eight to twelve months, this means lead times are stretched. The main thing is keeping the quality and that's why we have made the decision to build boards with the same small team. This means Joel's boards are still going through experienced hands in production, and the quality has remained the same. 👍


Are our surfboards handmade locally? 🖐

Not only do we manufacture in Australia our materials and supplies are also local. For example, our surfboard blanks are handmade nearby, as soon as we receive orders we arrange to pick up the blanks, they are then cut, hand-shaped and placed straight into lamination. More info.


Logistics and shipping? 🚚⚡️

Due to COVID, our movement may be restricted within our own states, but the good news is the Australian, NZ and US Governments have all committed to keeping logistics and shipping lines open. Shipping details are also provided so you can easily track your surfboard delivery to your door. More info.
