Custom X History

Custom X has been breathing, bleeding, and living bodyboarding for over 25 years. We take pride in what we build.

Debbie Colwell, owner, originally got her feet wet in the bodyboarding industry with Tom Morey at Morey Boogie in 1976. Years later she moved on to manage Scott Hawaii, where, in addition to her responsibilities, she shaped custom boards on the side. The once side project, known as Custom X, then progressed into retail stores as customers began requesting the brand. With the help of Dave Dale, Mike “X-Man” Fleming, and Dave Cunniff, production flew into full swing and the adventure began.

Through the years, many of the industry’s best shapers and professional athletes have passed through the doors of Custom X. Shapers like Mike “X-Man” Fleming, Jimmy Linville, Kevin Wood, and Pete Anaya, who currently runs factory production, harnessed and perfected their craft with the company. In addition, team athletes like Fred Booth, Robbie Crawford, Jordan Hetrick, Babby Quinones, JJ Ayala, Brandon Foster, Dave Hubbard, just to name a handful, developed professional bodyboarding careers with Custom X.

Just as in the beginning, Custom X continues to take pride in providing its customers the highest quality bodyboarding products in the industry. Today’s team of professional athletes likewise continue pushing the limits, both in and out of the water, for the company more than ever. With that much said, the legacy of Custom X presses fervently into the future of bodyboarding.

Passion leads to design, design leads to performance, performance leads to success!

TEMPLATE ZERO – JONES RUSSELL & ASH BRYANT

We’ve kept it under wraps for a while now as we fine tuned a special project that Jones Russell and fellow team member Ash Bryant have been working on.

The project involves a special collab board as they both ride the same template. Perfect for punchy beach breaks that Jones and Ash have refined their powerful styles in, to maxxing slabs they both like to throw themselves into. The model include each riders signature colour series.
