RE: Redz Surfboard« on: May 02 2010 00:05:760 »
The owner and shaper of Redz Surfboards is Patrick Napoli. I have a few boards from Redz. I usually customise my boards, giving Patrick my specific dimensions for each board. Depending on the conditions some boards work just fine. I just had one customised with carbon-fiber rails and it's fast and turns well! Again, a lot of factor comes into the picture, wave condition, surfer style, board shape, etc. I am not vouching for Patrick but some of my Singaporean friends have a whole quiver from Redz and we've surfed them in Desaru and Bali and they are fantastic boards! I've also heard some people complaining about his boards so it's really a hit and miss when choosing a board. You may want to look at Bruce Hansel surfboards as well. They are also pretty good! firstname.lastname@example.org

Good to hear that. I also plan to have carbon fiber rails, but since i don't really surf too much, may be 5-6 times a year, i don't really bother having those rails. Haha. About bruce hansel surfboard, where can i collect it if i were to buy a custom surfboard from him. Any idea?

I've just come back from Bali with my custom Redz Board and it's brilliant. I got a 6'10 Mega Fish, it's super fast and responsive but also really easy to paddle too. I had it made with a bamboo veneer face and carbon fiber rails, in a 5 fin set up. I'm really happy with the board
I found Redz to be really helpful and good to deal with. The owner Patric gave me a look through the factory. They also made me a custom triple board bag for a fraction of the price it would have cost at home too!
My next board will be a Redz!

Bought a board off Patrick in June 2014. Ordered it in advance of a trip to Indonesia. Patrick was very communicative while I was ordering the board.
Picked up the board when I arrived in Bali. Then I flew to Sumbawa. I creased the board while making a drop on biggish wave on my second session out with it. Felt this happened far too easily. I am suspicious of the quality of the blanks that he is producing on premises.
I mailed Patrick to give him feedback on what had happened, he never bothered responding.
