The Barque is our smaller mid-length option.It carries plenty of volume so paddles well and catches waves easily, and its full nose makes it a stable surfboard - particularly in smaller and weaker waves. The Barque’s relatively straight rail line and pulled in tail also make for a fast board down the line when the surf gets a bit bigger, so it could well be the only surfboard that you need – for any season, at home or abroad.
7’2” x 21¾” x 2¾” - 48L
Please note our custom surfboards are made to order. We often have a waiting list with varying lead times, so contact us for an estimated completion date.
You can also make your own Barque, on one of our week-long wooden surfboard workshop courses.

Please be aware that each board is handmade to order. By placing an order for an Otter surfboard you're commissioning a custom product, which means we can't guarantee a time for completion. Once your order has been placed, we'll get in touch with you and begin the process of building your unique surfboard.

Building your board with your own two hands and literally knowing it inside and out makes it much more than just another purchase; you develop a deeper connection with your surfboard. Ever put together some shelving or put a picture hook up on a wall? That's about all the experience that you'll need. You'll build the surfboard of your choosing alongside a maximum of two other people, with us guiding you through each step of the process.Build this board yourself
