Murray Bourton, Lightning Bolt Australia Surfboards

Master Board-Shaper – Murray Bourton

Murray (Muzz) Bourton first picked up a planer back in 1970 and has not turned it off since. He has seen the evolution of surfboard design, from almost the beginning and his knowledge in hydrodynamics, over the last 35 years, is second-to-none.

His versatility from Indo guns to tow boards, and his cutting-edge contest boards, leave no questions asked of Murray Bourton’s commitment to modern short board design.

Murray has crafted a very tight range of contemporary surfboards now available in Australia. Keeping with the roots of the brand the new Lightning Bolt Australia 2020 surfboard range will adhere to the principal of “good boards for good waves.”
