The type of surfboard you ride can make a huge difference to your surfing, both in terms of day to day enjoyment and also with respect to how quickly you progress. Therefore, it's crucial to get the right fit between you and your board.

These days there are many different surfboards to choose from. As a result, surfers who do not have an ongoing relationship with a competent shaper, may have difficulty deciding what type of surfboard would best suit them. In addition, different manufacturers, magazine articles and forums make different promises and claims about various types of boards. Some of these promises and claims are untrue or misleading, or at best are distortions of the truth. In these circumstances it's natural that surfers often feel confused or uncertain. For example recently, so called volume calculators have emerged on various websites. These calculators purport to accurately assess how much volume you need in your new board. However in truth, these devices are entirely lacking in empirical foundation and scientific validity and are simply another form of marketing. In reality, there is no substitute for a detailed consultation with an experienced shaper.

At Miller Surfboards, whether you are a raw beginner or a highly experienced surfer, your situation will be treated as unique. You will receive equal time and attention from Grant, who will personally work with you to design a board which meets your needs now.......and also those needs which will naturally emerge as your surfing progresses. From the moment you start talking with Grant, you will realize that you are not talking with an ordinary surfboard shaper. Rather, you are in direct contact with a professional who knows surfboards inside and out, who cares about his craft, and who is totally focussed on your situation.

Our level of personal service and attention to detail is in the superior category. Approximately 8-10 weeks after you receive your new board, Grant will contact you personally to see how the board is performing. After that, he remains available for you to consult with, or to advise you on any surfing related issue, should the need arise. The nature and quality of this relationship is very similar to that experienced by professional surfers with their respective shapers. What inevitably occurs through this process, is a progressive enhancement of your surfing experience. If you require the finest in surfboards, not the cheapest, then you have come to the right place.

Grant Miller has been designing and shaping surfboards, both here and internationally, for the past 41 years and has shaped in excess of 22,000 boards.

" Although dealing with a shaper might seem like you are purchasing a board, to a large extent you are really purchasing a service. Grant's level of service was exceptional - kept me up to date during a difficult time for him*, returned calls very quickly, delivered when promised and delivered a board that was exactly as promised. He was extremely easy to talk to and genuinely interested in what I wanted and how to make the best board for me, rather than what was easiest for him. Little things, like extra glassing round the fins and tail, are very well thought out and add to the quality of the final product. The custom spray was a bit of an extravagance but was done perfectly - not only does Grant provide a great service but he surrounds himself with quality assistants. This was my first custom board, but I see no reason to ever again buy off the rack, well at least while Grant is still around.    ~   Chris Age 43. "

* Note from Grant Miller. Chris ordered his board from my bedside at Milton Hospital in early November 2012, a few days after my admission with a very serious spinal injury.

Grant Miller, Ujung Bocur July 16th 2012 -- Excerpt from diary : “woke early, surf big. Triple to 5 times overhead. Only a few guys out but not many taking off. Paddled the 7'6” off the corner and out with dry hair and straight into a real big one on the outside. Dropping down the face felt like ages with a huge roar behind me, full power off the bottom and up high flying free. Fade back and then out over the top screaming. 3 hour session, no falls, a career high point at 54”.

INDUSTRY
After lovely holidays these past 6 weeks I'll start work again on Tuesday the 2nd February. I have plenty of work, all kinds of boards from a 6'3" Fish for Alex through to an 8'2" modified 2+1 Waterskate for Steve Minors. Steve has had challenges with medical stuff and is chomping to go again. V-SKATES, Waterskates, SUBX's and Powerglide's, it's all happening. As of today, any more boards ordered will not be finished until mid May. That's just how it is. First in first served. All the boards are handshaped and my glasser can only do so many.
The moral of this story? If you want one of our beautiful boards, contact me asap either through the contact page or on 0410770374

TEE SHIRTS
Out of the 200 shirts ordered I've sold almost half. Shirts are $35 plus $10 postage anywhere in Australia. 2 and even 3 shirts can be fitted into one satchel for $10
Most of them are Grey, but I have a few Purple ones too, all 100% cotton. See images below. We are almost out of Lime Green prints now, but still plenty of Blue and Purple prints left.

LOST IN THE ETHERS
A surf film by Andrew Kidman. Andrew is out of stock and I'm trying to track down a copy. If you have one or know someone who does, I'd be very grateful if I could borrow it.

SURF
We have had some really good surf over the past 6 weeks, and a lot of rubbish too. The Xmas crowds, compete with Hipsters were a drag, but we did our best to move them along. I've been back on my 6'3" 2+1 SUBX, unreal little board that it is. Also been riding an old 7'10" V-SKATE for crowd control and also on some big days while I wait for Col to glass my new 7'8" Gun. I'm back in good shape thanks to lots of water time and regular Pilates.
I hope that you have all had some decent surf over the break. Stay safe.
