A big hello to you all that like, follow, buy and surf Fatum surfboards. We like to think of ourselves as an original surf company. We make surfboards and believe in customization to match the perfect board with you, the human surfer. We have been at this for over thirty years now and think we have managed to get pretty good at it.
Our Factory shop is near Peniche in Portugal, we are open pretty much all of the time and are always up for a chat, so pop in if you are passing. If you come into the store, the chances are you will meet either Gero or Joaquim.
Joaquim or ‘Quim’ as he is known is the man that can… He will help you in any way that is possible, some believe it is actually part of his DNA. Quim knows a lot about surfboards, shapes himself and has a huge knowledge and interest in surf designs of the past present and future.
Gero is the master slash boss slash Jedi of Fatum. Gero makes all of the surfboards, they are of his design makes every one to the specific requirements of you, the client. Gero comes from Sylt, an Island in Germany but has spent more time here in Portugal than in his home country.
Gero is a realist and a true believer in what he does. He has an uncanny gift for asking a few questions and knowing what surfboard would work best for most given humans.
If you are super lucky, you might get to meet Saqua or Formiga, the ‘masters of glass’. These guys do the same job of glassing surfboards but take completely different approaches.
If you are looking to buy, rent or test a board, pop in and see us, if you need some fins, wax, leash, bag or advice we are here and happy to help. Even if you fancy a chat or an honest opinion. All are welcome.
