Welcome to 2017 crew.
That’s me back in the bay after another visit to the Hawaiian islands with a bunch of new ideas and concepts to progress Webster Surfboards. During my stay in Hawaii, I was lucky enough to get two mid-size swells and ride a few waves at Waimea Bay, one of the most amazing and beautiful line-ups in the World.
This season in Hawaii saw an all-round increase in board volumes in big wave boards. Surfers are more than ever embracing the increase in foam and ability to paddle into larger waves.
This year my focus is to further increase the volumes of my step-up and gun range with flattened, double-concaved decks. I have previously introduced the Magneto Deck idea into my fish boards with great results.
Stay tuned with more info to come soon.
What an amazing event at the RipCurl GromSearch National Final for the Webster Team. Nyxie Ryan is now a 2 time winner taking out the U/14 Girls. Jack Obrien and Dembe Ryan finished 2nd & 3rd respectively in the U/12 boys. The event also shows how strong the LE-BA Club is at the moment with Jai Lindeman grabbing 1st and Harry Obrien also getting a strong result in the U/12 boys.
The future is looking bright.
Congrats to Nyxie Ryan for finishing 2nd place in the u/14 division at the SkullCandy Oz Grom Open at Lennox Head. Nyxie won all here heats leading up to the final and came a close second to the winner Zahli Kelly.Well done Nyxie.

Webster Napalm Video
This Napalm model footage is from the Indo 2015 season, featuring Kanduis Resort surf guide, Nate Behl, doing his thing. This particular swell was named “The Swell of the Century“ and is possibly some of the most amazing waves ever to hit the Mentawai shores in recent times. Nate is riding a 6’4 x 18 1/2 x 2 5/16 @ 29.5L. It’s not hard to see why the Napalm model has become a favorite for Nate as his go-to Step-Up board. This is simply as good as it gets.
