Is it wrong to want all of these boards?


Chelle Bunderla January 31, 2013 at 5:40 pm

for a beginner going on intermediate, female surfer whose 165cm tall, small build, 50kg, not the strongest paddler and currently riding a 7ft minimal,..which size and board dhd would be good to move on to for a shorter board but still has stability (not the fastest popping up just yet) paddle ease and will help me to progress? I sometime dip my nose in on the drop in the wave face because I have little rocker on my board and have to lean forward to get onto the wave, and am not always the quickest to shuffle backward onto the tail (I stand up a foot from the tail so the board always feels too long. I was looking at the DHD monster and timebomb models in a 6'6. Not sure if 6'4 is too small.


Boardcave.com February 1, 2013 at 2:21 am

Hi Chelle,

We recommend looking at the wider outline models with more width through the nose. This will give you the extra paddle power and stability you are after. You can really go smaller than a 6’6 or 6’4 if you like because the length is not as important as the Volume in the board. Volume is the amount of foam throughout the board so the more foam the more float with extra stability and paddle power. You can have a 6’6 that is the same volume (L) as a 5’11. Check out the DHD Double Shot 6’0 this has 37.78L which is more than enough for you to get the stability and paddle power you are after. Also check out the DHD Project 15 and the DHD Scapel. All these models have wider outline with width through the nose. You can get away with less volume but it’s up to you. No harm in having a little extra to help you on smaller days. Shoot for above 29L of Volume to be safe. Chat Live if you need any further help with selecting and ordering surfboards on Boardcave.com.



Pieter Steyn February 5, 2013 at 2:28 pm

Hi Boardcave, I'm currently recovering from a broken elbow, so I've got limited paddle power and battle with a slow take-off. Need a performance board with a bit more volume to assist with paddling. I'm a 5'11, 88kg competent(like to think so) surfer. My current small wave board is 5'11 x19 3/4 x 2 1/2 and for a bit bigger 6'3 x 19 1/4 x 2 9/16. Any suggestions?


Boardcave.com February 11, 2013 at 6:13 am

Hi Pieter, I would recommend having a look at some of the DHD models with a bit of a wider outline. The new Double Shot is a great example. the extra width through the nose will give you the extra paddle power you need to get in front of waves and get down the face. You can still have the same length but the extra width and thickness offer that extra volume that will help with your paddle. Look at the Height:5'11 Width:21 Thickness: 23/4 Volume:34.84L Chat Live below if you would like to discuss recommendations further: http://www.boardcave.com/surf-brand/dhd-surfboards/hybrid-concept/double-shot/

Dom Peet December 2, 2013 at 11:26 am

Hey Boardcave, im a beginner whose only been out a couple of times but now looking for a board. I want to ride a shortboard but everyone says start on a longboard, however i know i will eventually end up on a shortboard and not sure that i want to buy another board in 6 months because i bought a longboard to start off with. I was thinking about the DX1 as it says its a good all rounder, what do you think i should do? Also what length would be best for me im 5'8 and 75kg.


Boardcave.com December 3, 2013 at 8:40 am

Hi Dom, good to hear from you. We wouldn't recommend the DX1 as your first shortboard. We would recommend one of the models with some extra width and foam through the nose. Email info@boardcave.com.au with your details and how often you plan on surfing and the guys will be able to help you select the right board.


Jacqui Beatty March 11, 2014 at 11:51 am

Hi im looking at purchasing a custom dhd board and i was wondering if i could choose a design i want for it?


Boardcave.com March 12, 2014 at 5:41 am

Hi Jacqui, yes this can be done. Please email the design to info@boardcave.com.au to organise the custom design. Cheers, BC Team


Bruno Medeiros April 9, 2014 at 1:01 pm

Hey Boardcave… I just got a double shot, so I'm all set for weak surf.

I want a board for when it's bigger, either fat big, or hollow big. I'm thorn between the Puzzle Piece and the Ducks Nuts. How much paddle power am I missing out if I get the Ducks Nuts? And how much performance (specially in hollow surf) am I missing out if I get the Puzzle Piece?



Boardcave.com April 10, 2014 at 2:14 am

Hi Bruno, the MF Ducks Nuts is a little more refined for critical surfing than the Puzzle Piece. It regards to performance and paddle power it really depends on your weight, ability and also the Volume and size you order. The Puzzle Piece is a great all rounder and is a bit more forgiving than the MF Ducks Nuts. If your after a board that will hold up in bigger surf as an all rounder, check out the MF Sweet Spot also, these are really popular: http://www.boardcave.com/surf-brand/dhd-surfboards/shortboard-performance/mf-sweet-spot/ Email info@boardcave.com.au if you have any other questions?


Bruno Medeiros April 10, 2014 at 1:49 pm

Boardcave.com, Thanks for the input.

I know that the Sweet Spot is really good in the barrel… but can it handle mushy waves given they have power?

I want to be able to ride hollow waves, but most of the time I will be taking a steep drop, and then the wave will flatten out a bit. Also I plan to go to Peru and will surf Punta Rocas, a very powerful, yet fat wave. I'm not sure how the sweet Spot would perform in these conditions.


Boardcave.com April 14, 2014 at 10:51 pm

Hi Bruno, The Sweet Spot has a little extra width than your traditional high performance options so it actually planes really well and will still perform in bigger fuller waves. As you mentioned it goes great in good waves, especially hollow waves.


Heather Kline June 2, 2014 at 6:24 pm

My son is a competitive surfer in Costa Rica. He is currently ranked second in minigrom and is aggressively going after #1. He is 10 years old and weighs 78lbs. His idol is Mick Fanning so of course we are looking at the Eager Beaver board:) We are wondering if there is a board you shape for the more advanced grom. He rides 12ft faces, barrels and is a total charger! We want something that can help him advance his surfing even further. Any designs for that? Thanks & Pura Vida. the Reidys (Pavones , Costa Rica)


Boardcave Australia June 3, 2014 at 9:22 am

Hi Heather, good to hear from you. Sounds like your son is ripping. Check out the MF Eager Beaver JNR and the refined version of the Project 15 the Next Gen. Both boards can be ordered as customs with refined features for high performance surfing. Eager Beaver: http://www.boardcave.com.au/surf-brand/dhd-surfboards/shortboard-performance/mf-eager-beaver-jnr/ and the Project 15 Next Gen: http://www.boardcave.com.au/surf-brand/dhd-surfboards/shortboard-performance/project-15-next-gen/


Andrew Tate April 12, 2015 at 8:30 am

Yo Yo,
Is it possible to get a 7'0" for just a bit more volume, I usually ride around 52 odd litres


Paul Mcvay April 13, 2015 at 3:28 am

do you like playing mid field or on the wing


Boardcave Australia April 13, 2015 at 5:29 am

Hi Andrew. For sure! When ordering your custom, please include in the comments section that you would like as close to 52 litres in your board as possible.


Deborah Austin September 12, 2015 at 7:10 am

Hi , Have bought my son a 5'.5" Double Shot and i am blown away watching the board work for him .. I WANT ONE TOO !
I'm 51 , have lived surfing from 8 years old ..and unfortunately have not had a custom board for many years . Too many committments , but have obviously been starving myself of the fun i could be having . at 95kgs and 178 cm tall i'm not sure whether to go a 6'.2" like i used to ride or drop to a 6' , given the extra width and thickness of your double shot … What do you feel . I would appreciate your advice .


Boardcave Australia September 14, 2015 at 5:07 am

Hi Deborah. Good to hear you're keen to get back in the water! I would go with the 6'2 x 21 3/4 x 3 – 41.77 litres this will ensure you have enough volume to increase your paddle power and wave count given that you've taken some time out from surfing the past few years.


Renato Prado January 14, 2016 at 1:58 pm

Adriano de Souza is no longer surfing DHD. He surfs Al Merick


Paul Devonshire May 2, 2016 at 10:43 am

Not sure whether to go pocket knife or twin fin model for 2-5ft tight small arc smooth turns and vert off the top, fast responsive direction changes? Can and do surf both types of board so advice on these dhd made boards would be great


Paul Devonshire May 2, 2016 at 10:44 am

Also what is the technical difference between extra strong and bullet proof glassing and what impact does each have on board weight


Boardcave Australia May 2, 2016 at 10:54 pm

Hi Paul, I would recommend the DHD twin fin if you're going to be doing the type or surfing described above. The twin fin model is going to surf similar to a standard shortboard but will be a little looser, you can add the stabilizer trailing fin for more control when desired. The twin fin model has more rocker than the pocket knife which will help you surf the wave top to bottom a little better. The pocket knife is better for smooth down the line surfing.


Boardcave Australia May 2, 2016 at 10:56 pm

Hi Paul,

Extra strong glassing is 6 + 4 on top and 4 on the bottom

Bullet proof is 4 + 4 on top and 4 + 4 on the bottom.

It is a little heavier but it does add extra strength to your board and will make it less prone to dings.


Paul Devonshire May 3, 2016 at 6:31 am

Boardcave Australia thank you for the advice and a will order a couple of boards soon from you guys


Andrew Clark May 7, 2016 at 11:11 am

Hi im after a 6.1 quad diamond tail around 30Litres and 19.5 wide and 2.5 thick…do you guys custom this?


Boardcave May 11, 2016 at 2:22 am

Hi Andrew, You could go with the JF DX1 model and adjust the dimensions in step 1 to suit you. This is a great all round board. No models in the DHD range come standard with a diamond tail as after many years of R & D the guys have found that either a round tail or squash tail work much better. If you would still like to go with a diamond tail please email service@boardcave.com and the guys will be able to find out if a diamond tail is possible on the board you would like to order.

This was my first custom surfboard and it exceeded all my expectations in terms of craftsmanship quality. By submitting my Height, Weight, Experience through Boardcave, DHD slightly altered the board to a more tailored product for me. The board is extremely responsive and stable, and feels really good in the water. It is far better than my 3 other boards, and I highly recommend DHD for anyone wanting an excellent custom surfboard.

Ordered a 5’10 sweetspot for my trip to the mentawais. It was my go to board for when the waves were 3-6ft. Couldn’t believe how well the board holds so you don’t have to worry about your board sliding out when the waves get bigger or when putting it on rail when carving. Goes sick in the barrel too. Surfed it from overhead HTs to 3ft burgerworld and the thing went sick. Definitely a board worth having in your quiver!

I find the buoyancy the thing I like the best. I'm a pretty heavy bloke for my size. I've been surfing a long time so I really enjoy having a board that works in lots of conditions, this one does that well and really allows me to work sections of the wave to the best of my ability. I'm happy also because it allows me to improve my surfing style against having to work harder these days as I'm a lot older (and not as limber) and so this board gives me a little advantage while staying short and fast to keep me locked onto the wave where I need to be...no slow down. :-)

Samantha - / 13Yrs / 145 cm / 39kg / 3 - Intermediate Project 15 Next Gen 4' 10" x 17 3/4" x 2 0"~18.64L
The board is extremely manoeuvrable while maintaining good stability. It is a great wave-catcher with the extra width. The addition of the extra small futures fins match the board perfectly.

John - / 34Yrs / 172 cm / 65kg / Intermediate / Advanced - Intermediate / Advanced Project 15 Next Gen 5' 7" x 18 3/16" x 2 1/8"
Fast and responsive board with a really lively feel, that particularly comes alive in hollow or bowly waves. I ride it as a step up from a dumpster diver. The diver responds better to flat waves, but as soon as there is a bit more shape the project 15 next gen feels way "sharper" and faster.

Excellent board. Needs good waves where it comes alive. What is sacrificed in stability and paddle power is gained threefold in speed and maneuverability.

Nick - / 25Yrs / 183 cm / 75kg / 3 - Intermediate DX1 5' 11" x 18 1/2" x 2 1/4" x 25.27L
I took this board away on a trip through Central America with me and only ended up riding it a few times. I usually ride a bit flatter and stubbier board and so in the softer beach breaks I felt a lot more comfortable on my usual boards. However, on a bigger wave with a bit more face to work with this was really fun. I ordered this with a round tail and it felt really good off the bottom and would go on rail really easily. It had enough foam under the chest that it would paddle real well but not so much that it felt too foamy. I liked this board in good waves but for smaller fatter beachies I'd farther ride something stubbier.

Matthew - / 23Yrs / 198 cm / 95kg / Intermediate / Advanced - Intermediate / Advanced DX3 6' 8" x 19 3/8" x 2 5/8" x 34.02L
My DHD DX3 is a very good board especially in sucky hollow wave it does not dig rails and very fast and responsive and holds its line through the barrel. its extra strong glassing feels unbreakable which give me confidence in surfing solid waves. all in all a very good board.

Glenn - / 52Yrs / 178 cm / 83kg / 4 - Intermediate / Advanced Margo Nugget 7' 0" x 21 0" x 3 0" x 44.69L
The board performs really well and I am extremely happy with it. I have found the rocker to be a little flat on steep takeoffs, especially with the board tending to take off late on smaller waves. There is no issue on bigger waves as they have the power to propel the board more for a sooner takeoff. The board turns well but is a little sluggish compared to my narrower and thinner boards but I expected that and am happy with it.

EBEN - / 27Yrs / 185 cm / 82kg / Intermediate - Intermediate Margo Nugget 6' 3" x 20 0" x 2 3/4" x 34.85L
It goes extremely well! It's easily the best board I've ever had and it has made my confidence go through the roof since I started surfing it a month or so ago. Goes really well in heavy beach breaks, reefs, points and also handles the small fuller waves with ease. I'm so happy with the purchase!

Andrew - / 47Yrs / 181 cm / 90kg / Intermediate - Intermediate Monster 6' 10" x 22 1/2" x 3 0" x 50.2L
At this size, this Monster is a fantastic option for the bigger surfer. It takes off and turns really well and has tonnes of speed especially in bigger surf. I prefer this board to my DHD 7'0 Monster which is also a great board. I've only down rated the quality a little as the base has started to get fine cracks around it. I love this board

Ben - / 36Yrs / 198 cm / 110kg / Intermediate - Intermediate Monster 6' 10" x 22 1/2" x 3 0" x 50.2L
Took this board to g-land and had solid 4-10 ft waves.. Mainly surfed as quad and it went really well.. Highly recommend the monster for hollow powerful reef break

Troy - / 39Yrs / 173 cm / 70kg / Intermediate - Intermediate Monster 6' 0" x 18 7/8" x 2 3/8" x 27.54L
Provides easy rail to rail transition. Should have paid more attention to the engine and got it a little bigger, went 27.5 litres and should have got more like 30 litres. - (please note the board engine is to be used as a guide only - Boardcave)

My Black Diamond goes great in all kinds of condiitons. Easy to paddle and gets into waves early. I've taken it out in some solid 4-6ft beach breaks and it really comes to life. I especially like riding it as a quad for the steeper/more hollow stuff. The added volume gets it across flat and mushy sections easily as well. Definately recommend it as an all rounder or for someone who wants more of a short board type outline

Since I have been riding this board it has improved my surfing dramatically ! I went back and forth a couple of times with the Boardcave team until we selected the correct board for me. Definitely good service,and definitely the best board I have had to date ! This is why I also bought my leg rope and tail pad from you guys.....

Great board, loves to cave and holds good in the larger stuff.. Defiantly made for the 3 foot plus days with a good bit of curve on the face. Struggles in smaller mush as expected. But in the good clean stuff come to life.

Justin - / 26Yrs / 185 cm / 75kg / Advanced - Advanced JF DX1 5' 9" x 18 5/8" x 2 1/4" x 25.5L
Bit chunkier than I'd expected through the nose and rails. In good bigger rolling surf it gets a little stuck and lacks drive, my normal shortboard would be 5.10 and I ride this at 5.9. So maybe that's due to it being a touch shorter than id usually ride in good waves. That said, in punchy beach breaks it absolutely flies. Super responsive, lively and very fast. Definitely my go to beach break board or for anything up to just over head high:

Went to Telo for a week and it performed brilliantly! So stoked I bought the sweet spot 2!

This board is excellent! At first I thought it might not be wide enough for someone of my age but I have been pleasantly surprised. This board has outstanding maneuverability and paddling is a breeze. Simply put, it is an outstanding product of Australian craftsmanship!

Really easy to pick up waves, excellent stability on take off, great manouverabilty. This is an excellent board for 40 - 60+ surfer who wants to continue with a performance board. The volume and extra width make it easier to get into the wave without loss of performance. I snapped my board by landing on it from 6 ft up (not the boards fault), I ordered the same board as a replacement.

This board is awesome.. Use this board for the bigger waves in south west oz. I added a little width for a bit more stability, don't know if I actually needed it but the board rides sick. First day out on this board the wave gods gave me a little over head high barrels. I got cover many times and made it out on all of them! How could I not love this board!

Great board for most conditions. Excellent performance board for older surfers.

I use this board as step up from my 6ft DHD Skeleton Key. I’ve only surfed the sweet spot 4 times but changing between boards is seemless. The waves were quality, powerful, head high to 2ft+ overhead. The sweet spot performs exactly as described. It feels good through turns and holds its line perfectly in hollow sections. I’m more than confident it would go even better in bigger surf.

This board is fast and loose. Holds in off the bottom real nice, tested up to double overhead. Tendency for fins to release off the top when I’m not expecting it but I probably just need more practice. Pretty stoked with the board all round. Paddles so easy in big and small surf.
