Individual expression and the surfing experience is only limited by the surfboard under your feet, and the waves you are prepared to ride. Over the years, HB shapers and surfers have worked to create surfboards for all levels of ability. HB’s goal is to build surfboards that work best when you need them. HB founder Terry Fitzgerald was among the surfer/craftsmen of the 1970s and ‘80s pioneering faster short-board and mini-gun surfing with hand shaped designs that reflected the experiences of his professional surfing career and distinctive style honed at international surf breaks.
