Kia Ora I'm Aylmer Kenny Welcome to Tangaroa Surfboards
These custom hand-carved boards are a pathway to connect with my tupuna. My mum, she said "your tohunga are coming through and they want to show you something and you just need to keep your mind and your heart open".
Alot of my pieces are commissioned and the site will accept deposits in order to commence your unique carved gift or memorial piece.
Get in touch as we want to hear from you.
