Light Performance Balsa Short Board model do vary in shape, size, rocker and of course performance. See below several options that are in stock or can be ordered with a built time of around 3-4 weeks for a custom.

The Stick

The Stick is a balsa skinned EPS foam core shortboard. The recycled EPS foam and the absence of a stringer create a significant reduction in weight bringing the Stick to around 3kg. The end result is a high performance balsawood surfboard with far greater strength and durability than your regular polyurethane board.

For summer and its small waves, the Riley Stick is also available as a quad. This quad is way faster than your standard thruster or even twin fin and much more responsive. For the travelling surfer and to take advantage of the versatility of the quad we recommend using the Riley balsa coloured fin system. This allows for changing fin setups and lets you choose between fin size, rake, angles, material, and more.

The recycled EPS foam and the absence of a stringer create a significant reduction in weight bringing the Limb to around 3kg with great memory and flex. The end result is a high performance balsawood surfboard with far greater strength and durability than your regular polyurethane board.

This is a great board for beach breaks from 2 to 8 foot waves, the Riley Limb has a set thrusters fins – but boxes are optional at no extra cost. This thruster has great drive and speed down the line.
