Testimonials for Black Square Custom Surfboards

Tom Howard

I've been working with Ryan for the last 12 months refining and testing a variety of boards, together we work and experiment well with all aspects of surfboard design trying to find what works best in all conditions.

Successfully I've had some of my best boards to date and refined some really good boards to suit a wide variety of waves. With the goal just be able to have as much fun in the water as possible.

Ryan's a legend to work with and an awesome shaper I'm stoked to be able to work so closely with someone so knowledgeable and experimental towards surfboard shaping, as well as the supporting local shapers.

I’ve been getting Ryan to shape my boards for the past 2 years, I used to go through a lot of boards and get him to stick them back together then one day he said “ try one of mine’. Since then I haven’t got off them, Chello's attention to detail is awesome, and i'm a pretty average surfer so getting every little edge you can makes a big difference to the average surfer game.

I have also found that I break a lot less of his boards! I used to go through a lot of boards, but now I don’t and the weight has still stayed the same.

If you haven’t tried a Black Square do yourself a favour and get one, you wont be disappointed.
