As you already know, the cost of living is going up and up…. This unfortunately also applies to surfboards. As you may know, I am “only” the shaper for Bear Boards, and as such sub contract all my finishing work out to other factories, basic raw materials have increased, Blanks, Resins and Glassfibre Cloth along with the dreaded VAT ( now at a record high of 20% ).
While I have tried my best to absorb some of the costs, and squeeze the guys who do some of my finishing work, the inevitable has happened…..A Bear Board will now cost more….. BUT you can be assured that I still use the best materials and the best craftsmen for all the jobs
A Bear is still one of the best surfboards you can buy in the UK today.
