I wondered if the tech and shape would work - short answer it does - a nice surprise on performance and feel!
I’ve had 5 surfs on the board so far all with the KS-1 large as thruster. From slabby beach breaks to mushy high tide beach breaks around the goldy this board flys. It glides like a hybrid but doesn’t get in your way when you want to do a turn. This is definitely a long term keeper.
Great service from Sandbah board arrived within a few days of purchase. Board is living up to all expectations . Performs exactly as described would highly recommend to any looking at a mid length board
Sanbah are fantastic. 5* service, 5* packing. My first experience buying a board online. Will definitely do it again. Why try anyone else when these guys did it first 100% correct.
The board was the FireWire mashup. Only a couple of surf's so far but it goes as advertised. There's a bunch of reviews online about this board and my experience is no different. A solid choice for everyday waves up to head high.

Perfect leggy for wave pool keep my board nice and close if I fall
Placed order 18 days ago and never recieved it.
Thanks for your order! Unfortunately there are significant delays right now with items going to WA due to damaged track lines & weather events. We know how frustrating this would be! The tracking shows it is due for delivery this week though. Please reach out again if you don't see in the next few days and we'll launch an inquiry with Australia Post.
Thanks again - Sanbah!
I bought the 6'7" with Future EN fins. Such a nice board to ride. Paddles well. Easy getting into waves. Maneuverable. Glides over flatter sections. I think this board will really come to life surfing a point break or in bigger winter swells, but goes well in the local beachies too.
Brook at Sanbah provided excellent customer service on my board purchase. He was quick to respond and took the issues seriously and thoughtfully. He was a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely trust Sanbah again for my next board! The board itself is also a dream and surfs beautifully!
Good fun board perfect for summer and great service from Sanbah with delivery within 2 days of ordering.....but guys ditch the plastice bubble wrap in favor of cardboard plz
People where great, helpful and friendly when I rang with questions. Board arrived in 3 days. Well packed and in perfect order. Would recommend and use sandah again.
Quick delivery and well packaged for the journey from Newcastle to Sunshine Coast, very much appreciated the board was A1 on arrival. Only two surfs on the new ride and it’s going to take some getting used to but feels like a lot of potential for fun in the right conditions. Thanks Sanbah!
The board itself goes great (absolutely flies) and handles up to around head high waves. The glass job on this particular model isn't as good as my other stock haydenshapes boards although still has held up pretty well. Overall, I would recommend this board to anyone getting into twin fin surfing as it's a great transitioning board from your standard shortboard.
Fast delivery of my smoothstar had me learning the ropes in days after my order. Order arrived well packages and as described..
The Smoothstar Filipe Toledo #77 Is the perfect board for me and as a result I will not hesitate to shop with Sanbah in the future, have already recommended Sanbah to friends!!
Brook went above and beyond to ensure my son ended up with the right skateboard. We had a very positive experience and highly recommend shopping at Sanbah. Shipping was fast and the team was very responsive to my queries.
The Smoothstar Filipe Toledo #77 is a awesome board and easier to pump and carve than we expected. Build quality is excellent.
Big thank you to the sales team
Snapped on the first wear (2ft gentle conditions).
Thanks for shopping with us, and so sorry to hear about this! If you can please send us some photos of the snapped leg rope to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will send these photos away to see if it's covered under warranty.
I've only had a few surfs on this board (3 to 4ft) and riding it with recommended Machado quad fins. I'm 65 and weigh around 88kg and have been surfing for about 55 yrs, it paddles on to waves and duck dives easy. Light and responsive and I was surprised how quick when driving down the line of a clean faced wave. Great board, there is nothing not to like about this board...
Bought as a step up for Ments later this year paddles great and surprised at how well it goes even in head high waves, does what says on the tin loves speed and being on rail
Sanbah packed & delivered a new CI mid in just 2 days. From order to receiving. They were super professional & so helpful.
The CI mid is super fun from 2’ to double overhead face waves. It’s really versatile. The build quality isn’t top notch though - made in China the board collects divots fast & compression around the stringer under my back foot already was showing after just 3 surfs. Maybe thats normal for a stock board which is why I normally go for made to order with heavier glassing. On balance though its a fun shape which is hard to leave behind.
These guys were great to deal with and my new wetsuit arrived right on time. Recommended!
Called up for some advice before placing the order, experienced great customer service.
Have never had anything arrive so quickly!
I am more than satisfied with the quality of the product and grateful for the exceptional service.
Fantastic boardshorts. Great service. Great price. Fast delivery. Thank you Sanbah.
The Australia post live in the entrance of my place and someone stolen
Sorry to hear about this! We'll launch an inquiry with Australia post now to find out what happened. Worst case, we'll replace this for you free of charge.
Thanks - Sanbah
We weren’t used to a chest zip, but very happy with the end result - this has been perfect for my skinny 16yo teenager – he’s taken to the water with gusto after many ill fitting alternatives. Store was great to chat to, very expert staff who gave us the time to work out the best option.
Wish I had waited for the firewire version, instead of ordering a custom from Tomo. I love the board but it is falling apart after 4 months I haven’t even had session over 3 ft yet and the board is full od massive deck pressures and the bio resin is cracking up and down the rails.
I will be interested to see how this new ibolic construction goes, I don’t think it unreasonable to expect a board to last longer than 6 months.
