The success and history of Byrne Surfboards revolved around the close knit Byrne brothers. Phil, Dave, and Chris were highly successful surfers growing up in Australia and competitive surfing took them to the top surf spots in the world including Bali, Indonesia and the surf mecca of Hawaii.

Byrne Surfboards got its start at a time when professional surfing began to emerge. Dave Byrne had been working as a glasser while Phil had been shaping in Australia and Hawaii. Thus, the three brothers decided to start their own label and their surfing experiences in Hawaii influenced their surfboard designs and methods.

Their success in creating high performance boards attracted the attention of some of the top surfers in the world at the time including Shaun Tompson and Larry Bertlemann. Tom Carroll began riding Phil Byrne’s shapes and ended up winning two pro titles on Bryne surfboards.

Phil Byrne’s designs are also offered in Surftech’s Tuflite epoxy line of shapes.

The company’s philosophy is to continue to improve surfboard designing through working to improve every surfer’s performance.
