THE CUB is a performance board designed specifically for you, the frothing grom. It hides foam in all the right places so you can push your surfing ability to the limit with confidence.

Gav’s thinking behind the design of this board is K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple Stupid. And this gem of a design has been proven, time and time again, that it significantly improves the frothing grom’s surfing.

The design of THE CUB is based on Gav’s knowledge & experience shaping boards for Junior World Champions over the last 10 years, including Joel Parkinson & Sally Fitzgibbons.

Designed for all those little cubs out there pushing the boundaries to shape the future of surfing!

    Thanks 1-DA for my 2nd CUB.

    So stoked with the board! I have more confidence in my turns and it’s so easy to pick off waves!
    My trip to Sumatra was sick and the fresh board was unreal in all conditions!

    Can’t wait to step up to the Mass Destruction. Yeeeeewww.

    Joel is absolutely thrilled with his new 1-DA board (THE CUB). His surfing has improved and is surfing with greater confidence too. Thanks to 1 DA for doing such a great job of his board.

    Thanks Gav & Nikki, Kai is absolutely loving his new board … 1-DA 5’0 CUB!! We appreciate that Gav gave us a lot of his time, getting to know where Kai’s level of surfing was at, to ensure that we ended up with exactly the right dimensions. Kai ended up with a board which will allow him to progress & develop his surfing & we will no doubt be back again, once he has outgrown this beauty! Thanks again.

    I love my 1-DA board (THE CUB). I’ve won a few Boardrider’s comps and I went in the Barney Miller Classic with it. It is very fast and it turns good. My favourite trick is a grab rail cut back. Everyone comments on the light blue colour. I love my board and I can’t wait to get another one to add to my collection!

    My 1-DA board (THE CUB) is so sick! I love every wave on it. After every wave, I’m heaps pumped to get back out the back. I love my 1-DA board and love surfing on it even more. Thanks Gav and Nikki.

    Thanks heaps for my round tail CUB, it goes sooo good. It’s really easy to paddle and I’m catching so many more waves and able the get on the wave super early. I’m loving the speed through my turns and the speed out of my turns, it’s crazy.

    It feels nice and stable under my feet and really responsive with heaps of control, I can put it where I want to. I’ve been riding it in 1ft onshore beach breaks though to 5ft offshore points, so much fun.

    The glassing is really strong and with my custom spray, looks epic too.

    Gavin and Nikki are really easy to talk to and are so helpful. I’m super stoked to be riding a 1-DA Shapes surfboard and would highly recommend 1-DA to anyone.

    This is the second lot of custom CUB boards that Gav and Nikki have hooked me up with and the first time I’ve tried the 1-DA EXCLUSIVE EPOXY. I’m loving how light they are and the speed generated down the line. They can help bring out the best in your ability and look sick too. I’ll be back for more once I’ve out grown these sticks. Thanks heaps.

    I love my new 1-DA CUB 5’0 surfboard. It feels perfect for me and since I have been riding my CUB, my coach has seen an improvement in my snaps and cutbacks which is exactly what I wanted to do. Thanks Gav and Nikki for making my transition to a 5’0 a smooth one.

    Brett, Jay’s Dad

    Jay has been loving the board (CUB) you guys made him. When I asked him how the board was, his reply was “Oh the board goes so good”. Very technical, ha ha. It has definitely helped his surfing improve and has definitely given him more confidence with his surfing.

    From start to finish, dealing with Nikki and the team from 1-DA has been a great experience. They were professional and thorough when it came to creating the perfect custom board for my son. He absolutely loves his CUB 5’ 4” and I would highly recommend anyone wanting a custom made board to go see these guys. Thanks heaps again for making Phoenix one happy kid!

    My custom CUB is going amazing. On small waves I can generate speed and on the bigger sets I drive down the line easy. The design is awesome. I LOVE IT!!!

    Love it!! I have been having so much fun on THE CUB. The board is super fast and it feels like I can generate more power in my turns with the board. It turns really well which is great.

    Hi Gav, Aliza had a great surf tonight on her new board (THE CUB). She really connected with it. It looks really nice under her feet. She said it is the best board she has ever had. She came in and gave it a big kiss and said her surfing felt so good.

    Charli (11yo)

    Thanks Gav for my first custom 1-DA CUB. It was the best Christmas present ever! I liked how you wanted to know how I surfed and where I wanted to take my surfing, and designed a board to help me do that.

    I am really stoked how smooth it feels on a wave and generates speed easy which is helping with my snaps. It paddles onto waves a lot faster and easier too, helping me catch more waves improving my surfing a lot.

    I really enjoy surfing the green machine. I’ve surfed it every day, sometimes twice a day, since I got it. I look forward to many more 1-DA boards as I progress. You’re stuck with me now Gav!

    My CUB board not only looks unreal, it goes even better. Gav sat down with me and helped work out what I needed. It’s so easy to duck dive but still catches plenty of waves. It has helped me do well at board-riders this year. I love it and am off to Fiji soon with the family to test it out on reef breaks. Wish me luck!

    I am absolutely loving the board (THE CUB). By far the best board I’ve ridden! It is great in all conditions and is super fun. I definitely recommend 1-DA to anyone thinking of buying a board. I love the board and will save up to buy another one.

    I love THE CUB. It’s the fastest board I’ve ever owned. I just got back from surfing Sumbawa and THE CUB held its line and speed in 2 foot sketchy Lakey to 6 foot groomed Periscopes and 7 foot chunky Nunga’s. THE CUB is what I want to paddle out on any time and every time.

    Milla’s Dad

    Last weekend was the day for Milla when everything came together for her. She surfed THE CUB at Greenmount on Saturday, and we saw some amazing improvement and it was as if everything just clicked. Then on Sunday, she competed in a club round at the Alley Boardriders Club Day. She won her two heats and then came second in the U10 Final.

    The best thing was that Milla came out of the water pumped and ready for more action on her new CUB.

    So thank you very much and I’m sure we’ll cross paths again as Milla continues to develop her love of surfing.
