Great people to work with, recieved order promptly and well packed. Happy to be a return customer.
Great quality and really good delivery service.
Super fun little board, got it a few inches shorter than my height and it goes perfect. Thicker beak nose makes it easy to paddle onto waves and would definitely use the mayhem quad set with it. Staff at sanbah were super friendly and helpful, always go the extra mile. Best surf shop around. 6/5 stars
Nice little surfskate, good alternative for the more expensive brands. Fast delivery!
The crew at Sanbah answered my questions, then delivered products interstate. Love their work!
Got the sci fi and this - sci fi is super fun agile and loose where as this is something you can really lay into the rail on. Surfs like a board with a few more inches on it.
This board is insane, cant recommend highly enough.
Awesome service from Sanbah crew! Thank you.
Board and fins arrived 2 days after purchase and cant get off this board.
Surf it at Bells, Winki, The Pool, The Pass, Noosa Points and Sunshine... This thing rips is all conditions.
The gato roach - not to be confused with their space roach model, is a classic old school single fin shortboard from the era of the short board evolution -1967-70. S deck, full rails, and belly, all ensure a smooth ride - no such thing as pumping or chop hops here. There are plenty of sweet spots on the board. You can ride hard from the tail, from the middle or even at the nose - it trims perfectly through flat sections and with the right fin, you can still jam a hard turn.
I have tried a few fins, but love the True Ames Yater 7.5 fin. It's a perfect blend of speed and performance. I did try an 8 inch Greenough 4a, but it felt like i was logging. I also tried a 7 inch Greenough 4a and that was better, but still very sticky on the turns. The more upright and stiffer yater fin gives the board more release and even though there aren't really any hard edges (even on the tail), you can still push hard through turns.
This is a pleasure to ride so far. I've only had it up to chest high so i'm super keen to see how big this will ride, but it works in open beachies and rippy little shore breaks - it's much more versatile than other single fins i have ridden. And nothing quite feels as good as barrel on a single fin. The roach makes it pretty easy with its full rail bottom turns that push you out to where the wave is folding over.
If you want to feel something different on a wave - definitely try one of these. Beautifully shaped by Andy at Wild Things and glassed to last. Sanbah/Ripcurl shipped this to my door pretty much the next day after purchase. Amazing customer service!
I have been riding a fish for most of the past year and forgot how much fun a performance shortboard is to ride in good waves. This board is so forgiving and it hides the volume so well its hard to believe it is a high volumed board. I don't see me getting back on the fish anytime soon as I genuinely love what this board has done for my surfing.
Thanks for the creatures of leisure tail pad guys, super happy with it and arrived really quick and In perfect condition. Thanks 🤙🏼🤙🏼
Super fun board, gets in early and turns surprisingly well.
Bought this as a present for my girlfriend she loves this thing she uses it everyday very nice product 10/10
Good product and delivery right on time. My daughter enjoy riding her surf skate. Will shopping with you again.
Super fast shipping & well packaging.
Your service & products are second to none
Loved this board since day one. It makes surfing effortless.
The board is so smooth for my kid
SUper fast but staying responsive, feel great under the right board...
Thus far i have just used them om the Machado Midas, but am frothing to see how they go ion the MAchado Glazer
I was impressed by the rapidity of delivery (free) and the care that went into the packing of the board I ordered. Highly recommended!
I was looking for an all round performance board with good paddle power. Did lots of research and decided the Seaside was worth a try, and got the matching Machado fins. Got the 6.0’ for float as I am an older surfer with knee replacements.
Spoke to a guy who already had one and he said it had transformed his surfing.
That was spot on. Paddles like a demon and performs out of this world, turns on a dime and is so, so fast! Does everything the reviews say. I am absolutely stoked with this board. One of the very best I’ve had in over 50 years of surfing.
I’m very happy with my board, the only disappointment is not getting the 6 foot board I wanted due to being told it was not in stock due to a website error but then when I kept viewing it on your website it said it was in stock.
It will just take a bit longer on my 5’7 blue Eric board to learn to surf.
Ripcurl is the best wetsuit on the market, don't buy any other wetsuit they are inferior. Great service from the crew at Sanbah.
Started out on an 8ft foamy. Then I bought a shorter board with a lot less volume. A lot harder to paddle than the foamy. That’s when I knew what I needed, more volume. Bought the 9ft Jumbo and am so glad I did. It paddles so well and makes catching waves a lot easier. Once on the wave it’s a lot faster than the foamy and turns better too. Very stable. It is very wide which makes it a little harder to carry but I believe it’s worth it. I’ve also put my small kids on it and they had a ball. All around fun time board. Very happy
Fast, affordable and efficient. Highly recommended
