Gibbons Surfcraft has had a strong history of innovation and leading the way in competitive surf ski design. Gibbons Surfcraft was the very first company to break away from the trend of having large nose deflectors. Our design saw the other companies follow our lead and do away with large nose deflectors. Our ski design was revolutionary at the time and saw the whole shape of surf skis change. Our GR3 model was the first ski to be sleek like a racing kayak yet still able to handle all surf conditions.
We were then the first manufacturer to come up with adding venturies to the hulls of our skis to drain excess water that would normally be sitting in the cockpit and adding unwanted weight whilst training and competing. Again this has seen just about every other manufacturer follow our idea.
Our current GRX model was the very first and original design to come out with the distinctive cut away nose. No other company again had come up with such a revolutionary design change. Our design was so successful, it has seen several other manufacturers copy our design and try to claim responsibility for our innovation.
