HB Sunglasses


"Surfing is Art. Art is Surfing".

Hot Buttered was founded in 1971 by Terry Fitzgerald designing, shaping and making surfboards to ride the world’s most challenging waves. “The Sultan of Speed” introduced wings, concaves and spiral vees to surfing and with Martyn Worthington’s amazing air brushes defined the colours of the modern surfboard. The two artists combined to make perhaps the strongest single statement in the history of surfing.

The HB umbrella has included some incredibly individual surfers, shapers and creative minds who have developed hand shaped surfboards, computer models, advanced technology in the manufacture of surf and bodyboards. Products include sunglasses, clothing and a full range of surfing accessories.

HB's headquarters is located on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia with local and international distribution to quality retailers.
