Nettleton Surfboards

Nettleton Surfboards is a low volume high quality premium surfboard manufacturer based in Byron Bay Australia. The company owner Sean Nettleton is originally from the surf capital of Australia, Torquay and has been hands on with traditionally built surfboards coming up on nearly 20 years. Starting at South Coast Surfboards as an 18 year old where over 10 years Sean worked to became extremely talented in all processes of glassing. For a couple of years Sean even picked up the licence for Hobie surfboards and worked closely with shaper Doug Rogers on building the boards.

When Sean left South Coast Surfboards he worked for most of the well known surf labels on the surf coast, sub contracting for such labels as Strapper, Gash, Maurice Cole, Corey and Wayne Lynch.

Sean got the most out of working with his good mate and Mentor Dave Boyd of Imperial Surfboards. Where Dave would educate him about board design and shaping. Even though Sean had shaped a board here and there over the last few years it wasn’t until working with Dave that he started to feel the need to shape.
