Luke Seaborne

Hand Job Body Surfboards Team Rider

I’m Luke Seaborne. I’m a surfer from Durban and a proud Hand Job Body Surfboards team rider. By the surname it could be assumed that I come from a family of surfers but surprisingly enough I’m the only one. Although I share with my father a deep love for the ocean and the spiritual experience it gives us.

As I said I’m a Durban boy born and raised and currently working at the Surf HQ (the best surf store in durbs 😉 ). Surfing bit me when I was 10 but I never really got enough time in the water. I turned to body boarding in my early teens and then evolved back to standing on two feet. Since then not only has my surfing improved but my love for the ocean has grown. Naturally bodysurfing has been something I’ve done when the surf is small or on trips down the coast but not until 2 years ago did I truly grow to love it. I realized when I got my first ever hand gun from a pawnshop in the middle of town that the surf didn’t need to be cranking for me to be in my happiest place… under the hood!!

At the moment I’m not sure I could say I’ve got a favorite wave but surfing I’d probably say New Pier or Lower Point down in Jbay. Bodysurfing however I can strongly say that Bike n Bean is where it’s at!

Along with a love for the ocean comes a hatred of anything that goes against the ocean. My biggest gripe however is the commentary from those who are not ocean children on those of us who are. The idea that we’re all bums and druggies when really we’re just more at peace with the world than the rest and more often then not just stoked on life.

I’m currently riding a standard Handjob board ( finless) and absolutely loving it. It’s got great hold in the wall carry’s speed well and above all gets me pitted and that’s what matters!!

I couldn’t be more proud to be a member of this amazing team and having the opportunity to get more people in the water, have fun and stay stoked all at the same time. Massive thanks to Jonathan Knight (Owner & Shaper) at Hand Job body surfboards for everything you’ve done for me and for all the stoke you’ve given me and everyone else who’s ever gotten there hands on one of your works of art.

Stay stoked people! Peace, Love and Prosperity to every single one of you!
