“Littlejohns is the hottest property in UK bodyboarding with a huge future and fitted the brands ethos perfectly”, commented team manager Rob Barber. Tyler (16) commented “I love the Found boards and have seen my riding improve super quick since making the switch to them, the shapes, cores and colours are the future of bodyboarding, I love them”.

International Found Competition - Won By Brit Rider!
Found Bodyboards recently held an international prize draw to win two of their much sought after custom shaped bodyboards, made in their factory on Australia's Gold Coast. The boards, shaped by international shaper to the stars - Jarrod Gibson. The online competition was entered by thousands of bodyboarders but the competition winner was UK bodyboarder Aaron Dinham. Aaron, who is already a very accomplished bodyboarder himself lives in Saltash in Cornwall and was over the moon with the news. Found bodyboards are the world leader in product development, design and product evolution so understandably Aaron was pretty amped to win!
Rob Barber caught up with him to find out what happened.
What did the competition involve?
It was a facebook competition and all you had to do was enter in your name, age and email.
First place was to win 2 boards and second place was 1 board shaped by Jarrod Gibson at Found.
I enter competitions online all the time. Why not you've got nothing to lose and you've got to be in it to win it!
How did you come up with your designs?
Found have a great board configurator on their website where you can build and play with colours whilst designing your custom board. I love my crazy colours so I had a lot of fun playing with that. I had the sizes already as I ride NMD custom boards.
What did you think of the boards when they arrived?
The boards are really well made and Jarrod Gibson was a great help. You can see he put a lot of time in to the boards as they are perfect. He teased me with one of them by posting it on his instagram and then tagging me in to it.
The Boards that Aaron won!
