We ♥ Happy Customers (alt title: rider feedback)

Here’s some feedback from a customer that just got a new Boost model –
Boost Model

I took your advice, and Jordan (Ohana surf shop) took great care of me. I purchased a 5’10 boost, proceeded to surf very small and crumbly North Jetty. From the first wave to the end of my session, I was extremely surprised and happy, the way it caught waves and the speed it generated were great! It passed my picky test: backside, rode smooth. Seriously, I enjoyed your boost a lot more than the Lost Rocket, and their Sub-Scorcher. Your Boost gave me a lot more enjoyment than a CI Whip. When I sell off a couple of my old boards, I’d like to get a high performance thruster (one that will work in Fla., and possibly a single fin (for gutless S.Fla.) Thank you for calling me on the phone, and for putting some fun back into my surfing.


Thanks Josh! Stoked that one of our Neilson Dealers was able to take such good care of you and that you’re enjoying your new Neilson Boost!


About neilsonsurfboards

I started shaping surfboards when I was 16 years old and ended up selling that first board to one of my neighbors. My big break came a few years later when I got a job shaping full time for Quiet Flight surfboards. I shaped about four thousand surfboards before burning out and leaving that company. At that point I went back to massage therapy full time and shaping surfboards part time for a few select surfers and close friends. After sailing the Caribbean for a year in 2000 when I came back I went back to shaping my own private label full time and doing massage therapy part time. The progression of names or labels was first “Sugar Cane” in the 70’s inspired by trips to Mexico and traveling in a bus cross country and seeing all the sugar cane growing there. Then “Quiet Flight” in the 80’s and then “Creative Visions” which then became “Neilson” surfboards in the 2000’s. I still make some boards using the Creative Visions name and unique mandala art work created by Courtney Davis. I’m up around the 10,000 mark for surfboards shaped and crazy as it sounds I’m still learning new things and still improving what I’m doing. Still love to surf and try and ride different shapes all the time! View all posts by neilsonsurfboards
