Matt Penn Surfboards has come a long way since the early days in a small factory in Dee Why NSW. Matt Penn was the shaper behind Insight Surfboards, working closely with Kai Otton, Tim Taplin and Jack Perry and the Insight Team to refine their boards. Matt Penn Surfboards have a large range of surfboard models for all surf conditions, from their well known high performance hybrid concept models like the new Hawk Eye, X Wing Gold, R-Wing, Raven, Zero and the popular Red Devil model, all go well in small to medium sized waves with natural speed and foam in the all the right places.

Matt Penn Designs have a large range of performance shortboards including the Lucky 7, R Nine and the The Crow. All these models have been designed and refined over the years for optimum high performance surfing. Other popular shortboard performance models designed by Matt Penn include the Matt Penn Hell Cat and Sub Zero and the newly refined Matt Penn RPM X with its small wave high performance version the RPM XG. Matt also has you covered if you enjoy travelling and surfing the bigger stuff, the sports car of the collection is the Matt Penn Premier. Matt has developed his shapes over many years with the help of many leading shapers located around the Northern Beaches in Sydney, working with well known names like Greg Webber, the founder behind Webber Surfboards. Matt Penn Designs after many years of refinement and development, offer a premium range of performance surfboards, refined for the modern surfer. So what are you waiting for?

My board performs exactly how I hoped, paddles great with lots of drive, I am surprised at how well it goes even in really small surf. Could not be happier, please pass on my thanks' to Matt

Matt Penn - X wing Gold 5'11 x 20 1/8 x 2 1/2 32.5 Litres volume - The board works as described, it has enough rocker in it to let it take a sucky drop and it delivers a good balance of drive and release, The chiselled Swallow tail and tapered rail allow the board to go on rail really easy, as the rocker is in the tip of the nose and late in the tail the board still allows you to fly over fat sections pretty easy, I am currently riding it around S/E Asia as my small wave board on points/reefs and beachies in the 1 to 4 ft range an it is a really lovely surf board.

Couldn't have asked for a better board. Excellent speed, maneuverabillity, control. I have been surfing for 27 years and my surfing is still improving with this board.

The Magic Black has gone unreal in all conditions surfed so far. Paddles great, really fast and great maneuverability. Even for an old bloke like me.
