Custom Boards

Posted: October 17, 2015 at 4:17 pm

Who can remember the thrill of picking up your new custom board. Every few days you could pop into the factory to watch it being built.You would always get that first shot of the board without wax. 
Jackson Surfboards and the other local board builders have created plenty of stoke through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. 
Not sure if the young guys of today feel the same as we did back then , when their imported boards arrive in a box from China!Photo words by Tim Vanderlaan.

On a sad note, Cronulla’s longest surfing landmark, Jackson Surfboard Factory at Taren Point has been sold. While the property has gone the Surfboard business is still up for sale. Jacko’s current owners will be winding down business until November. We wish Jim , Dave and the rest of the Jacko crew all the best for the future.
