"I really love building the most Eco friendly boards available in Australia by hand. My passion for shaping balsa surfboards and sparks a broader interest in this great surfboard material" says Mark Riley, owner of Riley Balsa Surfboards." For good reason, Laird Hamilton states that his most favourite boards are the one's made of balsa. " (see surfermag.com's exclusive interview about Laird). But you don't have to be a big wave lunatic to enjoy the benefits of a balsa surfboard. Lasting longer than a polyurethane surfboard while weighing the same and being more environmentally friendly, a Riley balsa surfboard is great for all surfers in all surf conditions.
Riley Australia was one of the first surfboard builders in the world to have their own domain name and web site in 25th January 1999.

About Riley Balsawood Surfboards
Riley Balsawood Surfboards was founded in 1996 by Mark Riley who had just returned to Australia from an extensive surf trip through Central and South America - in tow a container of Ecuadorian balsa wood. Mark now secures his “perfect quality balsa” from Papua New Guinea and Northern Australia. Since shaping his first balsa surfboard, Mark Riley has built a reputation as master craftsman and is still involved in the whole operation of selecting from stock of 1000 pieces of balsa wood, grading, cutting, laminating, shaping and finishing all orders.
