HB founder Terry Fitzgerald was among the select surfer/shapers of the 1970s and ‘80s pioneering faster short-board and mini-gun speed lines. Hand shaping and surfing designs that reflected lived experiences. A surfing career built on distinctive style honed riding and discovering international surf breaks.

TF’s hand shaped Rainbow Surfboards coloured with the timeless airbrush art of Martyn Worthington marked a new era for the surfing industry. Original Rainbows continue to be shaped with murals, and finished on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, for free-style surfers and perfect waves around the globe.
