The larger fish in the Otter Surfboards range, the 6’4” Woodburner is a higher volume fish shape designed with speed, both when paddling and surfing, in mind. Ideal for small summer days or for those surfers who perhaps don’t get in the ocean quite as much as they’d like to anymore, and who might appreciate a little extra volume under them as a subtle helping hand to get into waves and generate speed. One of the most popular surfboards in our range.
6’4″ x 22 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ – 36 l
Designed and ridden best as a twin fin.
“A series of waves moving my backfoot forward for trim speed, right back for turning, the board is flying and other surfers are starting to think I am losing it from the cackles erupting from beachside of the shoredump.
Last wave, walled up, almost closing out forehand wave, pumping for speed the whole way, just kept going faster and I know I did not hit top speed, finished with a floater over a section and walked home confused, grinning from ear to ear and absolutely stoked.
I could probably surf that board in just about all conditions for a few years and still not know what it is capable of. A fascinating board with a lot of positive idiosyncrasies which will take a lifetime to dial.”

This board is designed for surfers who are used to bigger boards and want something a little more compact and manoeuvrable, but don’t want to sacrifice wave count. You might be a beginner looking for a surfboard to progress onto, or a longboarder looking for a smaller surfboard.
The low rocker and flat bottom give you incredible speed, which couples with the high volume throughout to mean you’ll be able to catch waves an have fun in anything from knee high to overhead.
