Greg Webber is a non-stop innovator and shaper for top surfers all over the planet. In 1970 Greg started shaping Styrofoam boards at age 10 and put timber fins in them and copied the shape from Hot Buttered and McCoy surfboards.
Three years later he started Webber surfboards with brother John making them in the family back yard. Shaped his first polyurethane Webber surfboard from a broken nose Midget Farrelly board that he found in a trash bin at Bondi beach. A short time after Greg worked for G and S in Caringbah near Cronulla in Sydney and made boards for Richard Cram who won Australian junior title on a G and S Webber shape.
Come 1983, Greg had started Insight surfboards with Rod Dahlberg at Angourie, where they made boards for Many pro surfers like: Richard Cram, Greg Day, Joe Engel. Insight moved to Sydney and sponsored guys like Barton Lynch, Mike Rommelse, Shane Herring, while making boards for other pro surfers like Shaun Tomson, Sunny Garcia and Kelly Slater.
By 1986, Greg started doing his first full concave designs, as well as his first curved fins. Before FCS existed.
Greg re-founded Webber surfboards in 1996 back at Yamba and then
moved back to Sydney in 2004 to continue to build Webber surfboards.
Webber Surfboards sponsored Taj Burrow and shaped boards for guys like
Andy Irons, Damien Hobgood, Chris Ward, Josh Kerr.
Webber Double Diamond
The double diamond is a small wave board with range that paddles well, drives over the dead sections, and can also fit into the pocket.
It≠s slightly curved planshape and diamond tail negates that overly stiff feel that wide straight swallow tails can get. These lines allow the board to be pumped for speed and snapped hard in the pocket. The 5 fin configuration extends on it≠s versatility.
The double concave in the tail adds the bite that is needed to give grip when the waves get a little bigger.

After years of doing the fatburner and hearing good surfers wanting a similar but more refined version I decided to do it.
This board has all the volume flow and glide of the original fatburner/pulse model but with a sexier planshape, and a more moderate rail volume. The nose is less blunt, and the tail pulls in far more to create a lot more planshape curve. This adds way more performance in the pocket and gives the rider the ability to choose his line as against having to flow along with the more stable curves of it≠s predecessor.
It also has a greater wave range than the fatburner since the tail area is lower, another bonusΣ.
Slight single to deeper double concave in the tail.

This model is the shortest and fullest of the small wave boards that have been based on Webber's high performance shortboard. It's stumpy planshape is combined with fuller performance rails, slightly domed deck shape and the same smooth single concave Webber uses on his performance shortboards.
It feels alive and responsive and is a solid go to for summer conditions. The tail area is wide enough to not only give great small wave planing ability, but also to give the freedom to break the fins out in top turns.
As s bonus, Greg has included a tri/quad option that allows you to tune the Gutter Lover to your local conditions.
Available exclusively in super lightweight SLX.
The Sonic is the latest design incorporating a super smooth single concave, low entry and a clean continuous rocker profile. The progressive surfer will instantly see where this board fits into the quiver.
The board has a full template but the nose of the board is pulled in a bit toward a traditional shortboard width to minimize swing weight. The round tail and width are designed to get you up and down the line quickly while floating through flat sections with ease.
This board has a bit more concave than usual at 3/8≈ of depth and has a slightly flatter deck. As a result you get chunks of lift and speed from the deep concave but forgiveness from the stability that comes from the flatter deck.
