The Seasaw balances the best of old and new, in true Otter surfboards fashion. At 9’4” it is not an inhibitively long or particularly heavy board, allowing some nimbleness in where it can be placed on a wave. The prospect, however, of spending considerable time with your toes curled over the nose, enjoying the feeling of not having any board under you at all, has also been a major consideration. A blend of a traditional planshape with modern foils and rails, this is an accessible longboard for all.

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
Surfing the Seasaw was the first time that I’ve ridden a wooden surfboard, and I really liked the sensation of it. It was really responsive, so whilst it’s heavier than what I’m used to, it carried speed and once moving was very true. I was really surprised at how light it felt when riding it. It’s also really manoeuvrable – I could get on the tail and chuck it around a bit, which was great fun. I love how, once you get it going on a wave you can do as much or as little as you like and you don’t have to work hard to surf it. That feeling of being a passenger and going to slightly new places on a wave is the whole point of riding different boards and I really enjoyed it.George Stoy
