Owned and run by surfer & shaper Nick Blair, Joistik Surfboard has been making custom surfboards in Australia for over 17 years. Based in Freshwater, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, we specialise in making boards that increase your wave count, get you in the water more often and fuel the stoke in your surfing.
Whether it’s a traditional shortboard, a summer fun board or a cruising long board, Joistik surfboards has the right board for you.
All our boards, custom made or off-the-rack, start life on Nick’s computer. There, with years of experience and using his extensive technical knowledge the shape comes to life in state-of-the-art board shaping software.
From there, they are cut in Sydney on an AKU shaper machine run & maintained by a team with decades of experience in the surf industry. Once cut, Nick hand shapes and finishes all boards himself, adding the finesse and craftsmanship you’d expect from one of the best in the business.
After the shaping is done, our boards head north to be sanded & finished at the best glassing house in the country, The Glass Lab with Adam, Bernie & the team before making their way across the globe.
Surfboard technology has come a long way in recent years. The modern surfboard is now better designed, better shaped and better finished than ever before. On top of that, you the surfer now have many more options to choose from when choosing your nxt magic board.
Joistik gives you the option to choose whether you want a traditional PU (polyurethane foam) board, a new epoxy/EPS board (expanded polystyrene foam with epoxy resin) or a carbon wrap Karboload design to make sure your next board is perfect for the waves you ride and the way you ride.
