2010 marked the 27th anniversary of Turbo Surf Designs (Turbo), and in many ways marked the rebirth of a bodyboarding legend. Few brands in the world can lay claim to such a rich history in the sport of bodyboarding and with the new range of Turbo boards and accessories it is clear that Turbo Surf Designs remains the global leader in the sport of bodyboarding.
Turbo Surf Designs was founded in Hawaii in 1983 by the legendary Russ Brown (“Captain Turbo”). Right from its launch in the revolutionary days of bodyboarding, Turbo set its own course creating a long association with QUALITY and INNOVATION.
In 1983, Turbo rocked the bodyboarding industry by providing a viable alternative to the colossal Morey Boogie dominance --a stiff board with a vinyl deck that could be custom tailored to suit your riding preferences. Prior to this innovation, the bodyboard was a soft over-flexible piece of foam. Turbo revolutionized the sport of bodyboarding and has set its own course since.
Turbo progressed to the top of the bodyboarding food chain in the 1980’s and 1990’s as they continued to push the boundaries of the sport of bodyboarding. Turbo was the premium brand in the world of bodyboarding.
