A 'Puffling' is the term used for baby Puffins! The Dick Pearce & Friends Puffling is 2/3 the size of the standard Surfrider and perfect for children to learn on. The shorter length allows them to hold the board closer to their body and catch waves easily. They will be shredding in no time!!
RECOMMENDED USE - From strong swimming age! From 6+ to 12 ish. Always to be used with adult supervision.
Each Dick Pearce bellyboard is unique with an individual nose bend - the templates and designs have been passed down through the generations.
The board graphics are hand screen printed with the original DPF wooden screens and hardwearing inks.
Each bellyboard is handmade in the Dick Pearce & Friends workshop in Newquay, Cornwall.
Made with the highest quality sustainably sourced 9mm birch plywood. We use the best quality ply wood available to ensure maximum life and fun out of each board.
Plywood is a very low carbon and sustainable product. If looked after, our bellyboards will last a lifetime.
Please note that due to the natural variation in wood, all our boards are different and have individual characteristics. Open knots in the wood have been repaired with wooden plugs, and nose curves will vary. If you have any
curve/rocker preference please let us know.
Standard measurements are 80cm in length, 31cm nose wide, 29cm and 0.9cm thick. Weight is 2kg.
Oiled: These boards have been painted with our high grade water based paint to ensure they will last a long time! The naked wood has been treated with layers of our Belly Oil (Linseed Oil) – this natural material protects the wood and brings out the beautiful wood grain. This can be re-applied over the years if the boards are used regularly to keep up the waterproofing.
Post surf care
The boards should be stored in a dry environment when not in the water. If looked after well…. they should last for generations. Wood is good!
