About the Builder


The son of a cabinet maker and a classical singer, Duncan Lyster has been building wooden surfboards for the last 6 years, with the goal of making them as lightweight, and as strong as possible. He found his passion for crafting wooden surfboards while studying physics at the University of Exeter and quickly devoted his time to research and development of his designs. He spent a year surfing and studying in NSW, Australia and in 2017 he decided to start working on Lyster Surfcraft full time after the final stretch of his master's degree. Always in search of the next big thing his experiments have gone from folding surfboards to exoplanetary astrophysics but he thinks he's settled here for now...
