B1 Barka Model


Suggested board specs for performance surfing:

Length:   2-3″ longer than yourself
Width:   About an inch less than what you can easily fit under your arm / less than the width of your shoulders
Bottom contours:
For fun beaches to hollow waves:   Single to double to v
For larger more powerful surf:   Single / Single with a double
Rocker:    Performance



This is an amazing board for all surf conditions, and therefore great for travelling! A slightly fuller template allows the board to be faster whilst paddling and surfing (allowing slightly earlier entry into waves and more speed through sections) whilst retaining that responsive performance feel.  The rounded tail provides amazingly smooth transitions through turns which allows it to handle power and speed with ease.


These boards will be shaped with 50/50 performance rails

Tds dark for sitecropped

All boards are hand shaped by myself (Chris Barker) to the highest standard and glassed using what i consider the best materials available on the market and finished to a matt finish.  There is no regard to time; they are a labour of love!

All boards come as clear, however; designs, and resin tints are free.  If you would like a design, colour or resin tint on your board please contact me (as below);
