ABOUT ADRIAN KNOTT (ADO)
G'day my name is Ado , I am located in Noosa Heads Queensland Australia , I have worked in the surf industry for over 15 years as a Artist /Designer & Shaper . All my boards are 100% handshaped to suit the individual , I find it more rewarding to spend the extra time creating a truly original & hand built surfboard . My boards are all shaped in my backyard bay & then travel a short distance to the glassers where they are finished using traditional methods of laminating . I do not spray any boards they are colored using resin tints & pigments , this way of finishing boards takes more time & skill than laminating clear & requires more steps to complete a board . Just like the boards from the past I specialise in using high gloss finishes , Volan ,Cedar stringers , Stringerless blanks & Handmade Wooden Fins.
Feel free to call or email me for a chat anytime
Can you freight to another state :
Yeah for sure ! Surfboards under 6 ft can travel australia wide for between $30-$60 . I do not cover for damaged boards but I pack in 4-5 layers of bubble wrap & cover rails in cardboard for added padding . For surfboards over 6 ft price will increase .Surf freight is located on sunshine coast & also do regular eastcoast runs at a resonable cost.
What is a resin tint :
Basically colored Resin ,tints are semi opaque or see through . When combined with glass they produce a translucent color which enables you to see the foam & stringer . When tail patches or Cut Laps are used on the board tints will darken in this area.
What is a Pigment :
Pigments are Super Opaque or Non See through , This is another way to color your board but do not allow you to see the foam once applied to the glass .
Do you have a shop :
No sorry all my boards are made for the individual & custom order is required ,I ocasionally have my prototype boards available to purchase
