Humble beginnings

Paul grew up surfing the cold waters off North Wales and the North East in the late 1970s. Paul’s love of the sport and quest for (warmer) waves took him all over Europe. He would load up the camper van with boards, and hit the road at every given opportunity.

Over the years, the beautiful Cornish coastline became his second home and relocating to Cornwall became an obvious choice, not just for the waves, but for a better quality of life.

Paul began working alongside Karma Surfboards’ shaper Dave Farrow in the early 80s. He developed his skills in custom wetsuits manufacturing at a time when fluro wetsuits were all the rage. The 1980’s were an exciting time for the surf industry as money started to be injected into the sport and surfing equipment really started to evolve.

By the end of the decade Paul had established himself within the British surf community. Bodyline Wetsuits was providing warranty repairs for some of the biggest brands in the surfing industry.

Today, 30 years may have passed, but Bodyline Wetsuits still maintains the same values and reputation. A true family run business, our experienced team also includes original machinists from Gul Watersports, who were at the forefront of watersports technical development and original wetsuit manufacturing facility was based in Cornwall until the late 1990s.
