Byrne Surfboards

Surfboard Company Bali


After returning home from Bali, Hawaii the 3 brother Phil, Dave & Chris in 1975 from extended travel realized the 3 of them had an addiction to the sport of surfing and the life style. Dave just won the Bells Beach juniors and place 3rd in the main event The Chris the following year on the NSW state and Australian title followed up with the World junior Champion title held in Durban South Africa.

Pro Surfing was starting to Develop and the opportunity to start their own brand evolved with all three brother working in the factory designing and building boards with the main focus on performance and quality and this is how BYRNE surfboards originated. Over the next few years they used the surfboard company the base to travel to Hawaii each season developing new skills and designing boards to perform in all types of waves.

As a result Byrne surfboards became world class and with Chris consistently improving and breaking grounds and climbing the world rating s consecutively finishing in the top 10 in the world started attracting other international surfers to have Phil to shape their boards also e.g. Shaun Tomson, Larry Bertalman and a few more worldly names.The Byrne surf team over the years saw some of the best surfers in the world riding Byrne these guys like Robbie Page, Simon Law, Todd Prestige, Phil McDonald, Jeff Booth  & Owen Wright.At this present time Byrne surfboards are available throughout the world.
