"Handshaping Surfboards since 1992."
JDUB, AKA, Johnny Wood has been surfing for 20 years and shaping for over sixteen years and has developed a life long passion for both. Jdub has worked with a very long list of respected NZ surfboard industry people along the way, including being picked up by Hot Buttered Surfboards (Auckland) in 1999 as the main shaper. Over the next six years JDUB worked closely with the HB Surf Team (including Larry Fisher and Mishca Davies) and a large customer client base, handshaping a large number and variety of boards has helped honn Johnny's skill to the highest level.
Johnny has also had the privilege of shaping Hawaiian Island Creations Surfboards Label, meeting Master shaper Eric Arakawa, discussing shaping and board design was amazing and has heavy influenced his own shapes and designs today.
Jdub has had his own setup for a while now (in South Auckland, not to far from the wild West Coast), with a focus on quality custom handmade boards.
Over the last few years fish and semi fish hybrids have become very popular and we do a range focused in this area of design. We also build performance short boards through to long boards and everything in between.
We feel quads are an excellent addition to any quiver and we have been working a lot with these shapes over the last few years and have several models with amazing performance and many happy customers riding them.
We also have epoxy boards available in all the Current models, the very latest in IXPS closed cell foam and clear epoxy resin. This technology is here now and avaliable to you through Jdub Surfboards. p>

THE NiNjA : The High Performance Model of the Jdub range, designed for top to bottom and in the pocket surfing, a more refined outline, a hip in the tail, full concave or single to double concave bottom, low entry rocker and with plenty of tail rocker make for a perfect "pocket" rocket or in the air, the NiNjA can deliver the goods.
