Sadhana “Daily Practice For the Soul ”

Ride a different wave …

The idea of Sadhana Surfboards was born in 1997 on a lifeguard chair, as a reaction to the mass-marketed, mediocre, one-size-fits-all approach to surfing at the time.  Drawing on the daily influence that the ocean holds and utilising various garages, shaping rooms and sheds around the world, a small cottage label was formed.  While those backyard days are now part of our history, it is this hand-made craft philosophy that drives us still.

Since our move to Christchurch, New Zealand in 2008, Sadhana has grown to provide one of the most comprehensive ranges of hand shaped boards to suit all styles of surfing, on New Zealand’s beautiful South Island.

Building upon this craft ideal, we have extended our hand craft range into board blankets, bags and clothing. Our retail shop, located in the historic Tannery centre, has a range of accessories, gifts and music all influenced by the ocean.

We also offer a quality board repair service, demo and hire boards, guide books and travel supplies.

Sadhana is your gateway to the classic South Island road trip.

    Superblob

    When a fish isn’t a fish, it’s a Superblob! The newest member of our shortboard family fills the void for tiny and mellow surf. Similar dimensions and rocker line to our South Island Fish model without the retro feel. Width, volume and backfoot feel equate to a user-friendly shortboard groveller. Excells in EPS/epoxy construction. Ride 4 -6″ shorter than a regular shortboard.

    Count Backwurds

    Wide aft and super pulled in nose, the Count’s plan shape looks just that – backwards! The most advanced in our log lineup –  Mid point set right back between your feet reduces swing weight and optimises tight rail turns in the pocket. Of course tip time is served as standard with our well respected Sadhana log rocker. The next level in trad longboarding.

    Harbourmaster

    The 2nd member of our hull family, the Harbourmaster takes a twist on shortboard revolution era planing hulls. Hulled entry through tail vee, the harbourmaster surfs fast and glides with a remarkably longer, narrower and buoyant feel than its dimensions. Great complimentary board for loggers. Single flex fin zing and hull entry swing, guide through soulful bottom turns and grab rail cutbacks.  Get down low, and go go go.

    South Island Fish

    Our flagship Keel Fin Fish – 70’s plan shape with modern foil.  This is a great blend of old and new. Features are; Low rocker entry and exit; Double concave to winged vee through the bottom, and a flat, volume heavy deck, with light performance egg rails. The result being a surprisingly loose fish, that covers all bases of glide, drive, speed and power, with a healthy dose of style thrown in. Refined over the past 10 years on the reeling points of the Mainland’s east coast, the S.I. Fish rides equally well as either a twin keel fin set up or a  progressive split-keel quad. Board size at head height or under.
