1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Craig had to say yesterday about his son’s new MASS DESTRUCTION:

“I bought a 5'4' Mass Destruction for my 12 year old a few months ago.  Since, his surfing has improved and its obvious this board is everything he will need moving forward. I'm already planning to just buy the next size up when he grows out of this one.
Great board made by friendly, knowledgable, skilled people. Thankyou Gav and Nikki.”

“Thanks Gavin, I’ve tried it a few times now and it rides like a dream, goes exactly where I want it to go, no skipping out or me having to change my foot position to get the rail over. It’s like a Ferrari compared to my other boards. Very happy.”

“I sat down with Gav and placed a custom order for a 7.6 Gun. Every time I get a board off Gav and Nikki (1-DA) it reignites my passion and froth for surfing again. It’s so much fun in small waves and it goes off in anything overhead. Just a sick board. Nailed it again, so stoked, absolute legends.”

But after getting my Fish, I’m catching more waves than what I know what to do with! And I’ve got the speed and buoyancy to move around better than ever. I’m so stoked about my new board.”

“Wow, what a wonderful experience to deal with Gav and Nikki. Gav is such a first class shaper and Nikki’s communication throughout the process was just brilliant.
I purchased a custom 8’0” round and it’s performing amazingly.
I was after an emotional attachment to my board. A little 60’s retro along with modern day. Gav was so understanding of my design request. What I got exceeded my expectations. Perfect size, feel, float and wow the look is so amazing just a beautiful finish.
Thanks so much to the whole 1-DA family. They have reinvigorated my passion for catching waves.
So do ya self a favour and get in contact with 1-DA Shapes.”

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Aaron had to say about his CHEATER:

“Excellent experience with the team at 1-DA.
I locked in a FREE one-on-one video consultation with Gavin. He listened to what I was trying to achieve with my surfing and together we came up with a plan for a custom CHEATER.
Being based in NZ, I was a little nervous with the whole ordering online and shipping back from Aus, but dealing with Nikki I can safely say its been the best customer experience to date with any surfboard order.  Nikki worked a plan to get it to me and my board arrived at my door in perfect condition.
I've been super happy with my board, from the model, the size and the construction (PU glassed in Epoxy). I 100% recommend 1-DA and I am already planning my next order.
Thank you.”

After buying 1-DA boards for his son for over 4 years, Gold Coast surfer BRETT finally decided to get a 1-DA board for himself. Here’s what Brett had to say about his new DUB T:

“After many years of ordering boards for my son, it was finally time for me to order one from Gav. Gav took the time with me to listen to what I was looking for and suggested the Dub T. What a great choice. To say this board has changed my outlook on surfing is an understatement. I can not get off this thing. The board is super fast and loose and gets through sections without even trying. It has definitely added to my surf fun. I cannot believe it took me this long to order myself a board from 1-DA.
Thanks again Gav and Nikki. ”

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Jamie had to say about his new J-FORCE:

“I got the 6’2 J Force as a step up option for when the waves are firing so I haven’t ridden it as regularly as my Multi but it feels comfortable under my feet and turns on a dime so all good there. 
I initially chose 1-DA after seeing the branding on Gav’s car when I took my daughter to her ballet lesson just down the street from the factory. I did a quick website search and thought that the consultation was a good idea. I’ve ordered a fair few custom boards in the past but never really had that kind of one on one conversation with the shaper before. I really enjoyed just talking about boards with Gav and am stoked with the results. I’ll definitely be ordering my boards from 1-DA from now on.”

Jamie got a custom J-FORCE 6’ 2” x 19 5/8” x 2 5/8” round tail 32.82L in standard PU construction and with a custom spray.

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Mino had to say about his new MULTI:

“I've been riding my MULTI 5’ 8” for almost 3 months. This board is my 5th 1-DA surfboard.

For the last couple of years, I was struggling to enjoy surfing. Then I decided to knock on Gav's door!! When I had a consultation with Gav, he listened carefully to what I said (been struggling, getting older, need more paddle speed, etc).

Then a few weeks later, I got a new beautiful board in my hands. The board has been giving me a lot of advantages. The board paddles nice and easy and helps my neck & shoulder. Easy to catch waves, nice response, speed is fast enough to throw the white wave sections.

And the best thing is, I have been enjoying surfing!

The board dimensions are MULTI 5’ 8” x 19 1/4" x 2 5/16"  26.5L Hip Rounded Square”

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Mino had to say about his new MULTI:

“I've been riding my MULTI 5’ 8” for almost 3 months. This board is my 5th 1-DA surfboard.

For the last couple of years, I was struggling to enjoy surfing. Then I decided to knock on Gav's door!! When I had a consultation with Gav, he listened carefully to what I said (been struggling, getting older, need more paddle speed, etc).

Then a few weeks later, I got a new beautiful board in my hands. The board has been giving me a lot of advantages. The board paddles nice and easy and helps my neck & shoulder. Easy to catch waves, nice response, speed is fast enough to throw the white wave sections.

And the best thing is, I have been enjoying surfing!

The board dimensions are MULTI 5’ 8” x 19 1/4" x 2 5/16"  26.5L Hip Rounded Square”

10 out of 10, would definitely recommend.

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Kaleb had to say about his ELITE 5’ 11” ordered online:

“This is my second Elite and I couldn’t believe it was better than the last! When the waves are good there’s no other board I’d want under my feet. Lots of speed and drive and the right amount of release when you want it. Performance short boards don’t get any better. Couldn’t recommend 1-DA enough, from the product itself to the staff and communication, everything is A+.”
