About Bradley Surfboards
Please get in contact with custom surfboard shaper Christiaan Bradley if you have any specific questions about his boards or if you want to order surfboards glassed by Hydroflex.
Christiaan Bradley is an in demand Australian shaper, based in Europe. This makes Hossegor his home break now, but he is originally from Tazmania making Marrawah also a home break for him.
When he was very young his Dad used to make surfboards and even shaped some of Christiaan’s first boards. Christiaan Bradley himself first started getting his hands on the foam by fixing friends’ boards with Dad’s materials. His next step was sanding with Brothers Neilsen at Burleigh Heads and he also sanded at Local Motion in Ballina for some years.
It was Bradley’s trip to Europe in 2001 that he started shaping. He acquired shaping skills from Brian Ingham at Pukas. And from then on, he started making a name for himself by shaping boards for Merrick and quickly getting noticed by the best surfers in the world.
Bradley had pro surfers like Patterson and Danny Wills wanting high performance boards for the comps from him. And now the guys on tour today have seen Bradley’s boards in many of their heats.
Jeremy Flores won the 2010 Pipemasters on Bradley’s CB1 model! As Christiaan’s shaping continues to progress, he is improving his craft by surrounding himself and working with the best surfers and shapers from around the world, which also give him unbelievable support.
Bradley’s surfboard logo features the Tasmanian Devil, a native species to Tasmania on the brink of extinction from a deadly facial cancer. He has started DOLLAR FOR THE DEVIL. For every board sold, 1 euro or dollar goes to the SAVE THE TASMANIAN DEVIL FUND.
“It would be sad, to say the least, to lose THE TASSIE DEVIL in my lifetime, this fella I feel we can do something about, not so for so many others. Hard to imagine a world without all its incredible creatures.” Says Christiaan. “It’s a bit upsetting the strain we as humans put on our natural world and all species associated with it. It really is embarrassing to be human sometimes and we are all guilty to some extent about the state of this planet. Whatever you can do to help, no matter how small, or for whatever cause, it all helps...”
