Take a walk on the Pier, Otter Surfboard’s Traditional Mal. Playing on the glide and momentum inherent in wooden surfboards, the Pier replicates the weight of classic, volan glassed longboards of old. Riding the Pier is all about trim, poise and working with, rather than against, the wave and the board under your feet.

9'6" x 16" x 22 7/8" x 18 1/2" x 3 1/4" - 78.2 l

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 Pier, 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.

Make It Yourself


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

These are stunning surfboards. They are beautifully made and I am fast becoming a wooden surfcraft convert! I had a super fun surf on the 9’6” Pier and had some really nice, long noserides on it.
