Tree To Sea
We are passionate about creating bespoke, handcrafted
sustainable wooden boards, paddles and accessories.
We do so in a manner that harmoniously blends traditional
carpentry techniques with the precision that modern
technologies now offer.
All Lignum products begin as a seed. It is this truism that
forms the basis of our design and build philosophy.
We nurture, invest in and work with our local environment,
materials and clients to produce unique boards. Boards that are
engineered for a lifetime
Alen Van Rooyen
The ancient Polynesians were the first to harness the qualities of wood to create surf craft.
At Lignum we are continuing to utilise this renewable and natural material by building boards that have sustainability and longevity at their core.
Lignum boards are made from carefully chosen locally sourced wood which is wrapped
around our ultra-lightweight framework and sealed with environmentally friendly epoxy
Up to 7ft
Lignum paddleboards are essentially a one-person classic yacht.
Our boards, developed for effortless motion through the water are ideal for day trips along coastlines, inland waterways, and lakes.
Each board features a handmade high-performance carbon and foam framework, for a solid but lightweight feel underfoot. The natural Teak deck provides a non-slip surface when wet and adds a timeless feel.
They are the ultimate when it comes to luxury paddleboarding.
We are proud to offer a bespoke service for each project we
embark on, as we turn dreams of owning a beautiful wooden
board into a reality for our clients.
We merge naval architecture and traditional boat building
techniques with continuous attention to detail to reduce
weight, increase strength, and maintain the tactile feel of the
materials we use.
Our design philosophy is to make beautiful functional boards
that are carefully engineered to last for generations while also
protecting the environment that we cherish.
Our service can tailor design a product just for you. For more
