We have found a great niche for ourselves with our custom surfboards. With Nigel Semmens at the helm shaping our entire range in Newquay, Cornwall. Through our unique board offering we have also worked with California fin manufacturers Rainbow fin who have been hand making surfboard fins since 1968 in Santa Cruz.
We developed a range of 9 surfboards that all require the best hardware to be used with them. We have developed 3 different single fins that span all our models of surfboards.
"WHEN WE DECIDED TO SUPPLY OUR OWN SURFBOARD FINS, WE WERE SO HAPPY THAT RAINBOW FIN WANTED TO WORK WITH US TO MANUFACTURE THEM"
Rainbow fins are one of the original fin manufacturers from california. They opened shop in 1968 in Santa Cruz. Being located in Santa cruz allows them to r&d this fins all year round.
Watershed started manufacturing surfboards in late 2012 when they saw a gap in the market for surfboards that looked as good as they surfed. With a market that was predominantly lead by white shortboards, we wanted to design surfboards that would cater for all surfers. Using traditional methods and the best quality materials, we also needed to stand out as a beautiful piece of design. Watershed surfboards have become one of the most sought after custom surfboards in the UK market and we have gained a strong heritage feel to our boards.
With our combined passion for heritage and quality we came up with a collection of 3 fins to compliment out range of surfboards. Two of the fins are based on original Rainbow fin designs and the third which is our 'W' flex has been designed around the resurgence of the single fin. It can be used in a variety of our board designs but is best suited to our performance shegg.
"it has been great working with rainbow fin co. they are absolutely amazing at what they do and like us they are a small family/friend run business"
This is amazing collaboration of 2 brands that are extremely passionate about designing and manufacturing products of the highest quality. Being a british based brand has not always been easy for us but with projects like this we are being recognised all over the world and our commitment to producing unique products has helped this.
