The Bubble system
We make boards for all types of conditions from flatwater freeride boards to dedicated wave boards designed for radical turns in side-off waveriding conditions. The process when a client orders a 100% custom board is the following:
-Firstly we establish, together with the client, exactly what will be expected of the board, which aspects of performance the client would like to be improved upon compared to its predecessor.
-If the previous board was a Bubble then this part of the process is made easy for us as we draw on our experience and constant testing to improve on the points required by looking at the measurements of the old board and introducing some of our more recent design developments (we keep a meticulous record of every board made here at Bubble so we can look at the previous shape in infinite detail and therefore find ways to streamline its performance).
-If this is not the case, then we have a range of test boards which the client can then try and we work from there.
-If this is not possible for whatever reason then we work with the client to assess the exact properties required from the board.
-We are very experienced in this area of customer relation, it being essential in the production of a suitable 100% custom board.
-We are fully aware that one board can never suit every sailor as the performance expected from a board is wholly dependent on sailor ability, weight, style of sailing, prevailing conditions and many other factors.
-We always give a shape guarantee with our boards, that is to say if we make a board which does not achieve the parameters set by the client then we assume responsibility and will do our best to rectify the situation by one means or another. This is what we believe to be the essence of a true custom board and is 100% our philosophy here at Bubble Custom Boards.
