ASRA - Australian Skateboard Racing Association

A few people have commented on Nath's pics asking about the CF board in his quiver and he has made reference to it here on the Forums, so here is a very quick rundown of the small company building this board.

Norfin Longboards is a Townsville based deck builder working in Bamboo, fibreglass and Carbon Fibre. The boards are all cnc cut and vaccuum bag moulded. There will be a range of boards available off the shelf very soon, but custom work is their speciality.

I have been riding a prototype Norfin board of one sort or another for the past 12 months and a lot of my really expensive decks are starting to get very jealous (;-)>

At present Paul (builder) is making cruising/carving decks, but as Nath hinted, some serious DH gear is in the pipeline.

If you'd like to discuss your requirements for a deck drop Paul a line on pgdemopoulos at bigpond dot com and I can assure you you will be stoked with the results.

I'll attach a few pics to whet your appetites!!!!!

You'll need to talk to the guys at Norfin, but highly unlikely

yes it was a longshot

nice stuff paul.
these guys still making boards? i sent an email to the address above.
Sure are Rob, last time I spoke to Paul he was snowed under with work. Try him again and make sure you put Norfin Boards in the subject line to grab his attention. If I see him I'll get him to put something up on here

My daughters got 2nd and 3rd place at the MOTH 2011 (Master of the Hill). Belle was riding a Norfin Manta, Paris 180's and Purple O'tangs. Her trusty steed got her to the podium and prizemoney. There are a lot of Longboard manufacturers popping out their stuff but If you are looking for a board, which is individual like you are, get a hold of Paul at Norfin Longboards. He specialises in custom boards in bamboo and carbon fibre. I understand that Paul is now doing his Downhill Customs in Foam Core. There are three decks permanently affixed to the HopShop wall which are just beautiful works of art....it would be a shame to put trucks and wheels on them. These boards are sweet. He's on Facebook and Twitter. Check out the Norfin El Diablo while you are at it.....shot below is Belle and her Norfin Manta after bombing a carpark in St Leonards, Sydney.
