Eden SAUL - Dead Kooks surfboards
Born and raised in Lennox Head on the Far North Coast of New South Wales (Australia), a place I still call home. Growing up and living on the East Coast of Australia has provided a bevy of right hand points to test, play with and refine what I’ve been riding and shaping and has greatly influenced what a Dead Kooks board is all about.
Dead Kooks Surfboards has evolved over the past 9-10 years from a backyard hobby making boards for myself and friends, to a full-time job working with world champions and a string of worlds top surfers. Drawing inspiration from shapes of old, the boards we make are anything but retro.
Everything is designed, shaped and futher refiend with perfromance in mind, tackling everything from 12ft gliders, paddle guns for Jaws to refined modern logs, fish, singles and shorties.
Over the past years I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world shaping and surfing and doing what I love, and as long as people are stoked and I’m excited, I’ll keep doing that for as long as my body and mind allows.

Each surfboard is crafted using traditional surfboard manufacturing techniques the emphasize craftsmanship and quality. Each board is as much a piece of art as it is a finely tuned, highly functional surf craft.
Thomas BEXON - Thomas surfboards
I make surfboards, i reckon i make pretty rad ones, just not too many white 6’1″ thrusters. Most of the testing is done on some pretty tasty point waves and few beaches, been doing it a little while now and really enjoy it.
I make ’em at a factory that has a lot of history in Australian surfing, bit of a bonus for me really. I’ve learnt a lot off some really great people from spending many hours in the shaping bay and in the water. Surfing’s fun and doing it on all types of boards makes you smile and keeps it interesting.
