Hot Butteredunder licence
Hot Buttered was founded in 1971 by Terry Fitzgerald designing, shaping and making surfboards to ride the world’s most challenging waves. “The Sultan of Speed” introduced wings, concaves and spiral vees to surfing and with Martyn Worthington’s amazing air brushes defined the colours of the modern surfboard. The two artists combined to make perhaps the strongest single statement in the history of surfing.
The HB umbrella has included some incredibly individual surfers, shapers and creative minds, with Boyd flying the HB flag in West Australia for over 20 years.
Boyds relationship with Terry Fitzgerald started when Terry needed someone to shape ‘WA boards’ for his boys Kye and Joel, who were then surfing the world qualifying series. They returned good results and feedback on the boards.
Boyd and Terry continue their working relationship to this day.
