Dick Pearce & Friends
SAS Branded Bellyboards
When the fun is over, single-use polystyrene bodyboards are often discarded across our beautiful beaches. Eventually, they break down into tiny pieces, causing harm to wildlife in and around the ocean.
That’s why Dick Pearce and Friends support Surfers Against Sewage with the latest Limited Edition wooden bellyboard range, ready for you to catch the next wave. Even better, they’re completely plastic free. With three colourways to choose from, we know you’re going to love them.
Supporting our ocean saving work
For every SAS Limited Edition board sold, 15% will be donated to Surfers Against Sewage. So if you wanted to give bellyboarding a go, there’s no better time to #TryThePly
But what makes wood so good?
If you chat to someone with a wooden board, they’ll often wax lyrical with tales of their benefits and proudly talk of how the board has been passed down through multiple generations. Contrast this with the fleeting joy of the vast amount of polystyrene bodyboards that fill beach car park bins across the country and it’s easy to see why we think that wood really is that good.
Benefits of Wooden Boards
To look into the benefits of wooden boards, we take a duck-dive into the lifecycle of our favourite raw material, revealing benefits for people and planet. Read about this here.
But who are Dick Pearce & Friends?
Founded by Charles Pearce in South Molton, Devon in 1928, the shop used to be a tannery and Charles used to make all sorts of beach goods. They started making bellyboards in the ’40s.
Charles Pearce handed the business on to his son Dick once he passed away. When Dick Pearce died in 2010, Jamie bought the business from his widow, along with the manufacturing equipment and have continued the heritage today.
Throughout the years they’ve become the biggest bellyboard manufacturer in the UK.
