About Us

Onboard Industries is a family owned surf-hardware manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer. Based out of Sydney, Australia, its beginnings date back to 1989, when Mel Hayhoe and Drew Down decided to enter the world of surfboard manufacturing. Ever since, we have strived to build our boards at the highest quality possible, while continuing to offer premium customer service.  

Onboard now has retail stores in Mona Vale and Byron Bay, and also three stores throughout Bali in Seminyak, Canguu and Padang. Each store is designed to fit into each community, and our hand-picked staff are made up of people who love to surf.

Here at Onboard we manufacture surfboards from Channel Islands, Simon Anderson, Tokoro, Chris Christensen, Town & Country, Insight and Haydn Lewis for Australia. We also distribute Catch Surf Surfboards, Buell Wetsuits, and Salt & Stone Natural Skincare.
