The Bambi is Kiri's flagship model and their take on a traditional Westcountry bellyboard. Kiri's mission is to rid our beaches of cheap, throwaway bodyboards, which break almost immediately, litter our coasts and poison our marine wildlife. Bambi offers a sustainable alternative, which looks stunningly beautiful, performs amazingly well in every type of surf and will last you a lifetime.

Product Details

Product Details


The Bambi is a refinement of the traditional Westcountry bellyboard. These boards were typically 4 feet long, 12 inches wide and made from marine plywood. Kiri have added an inch to the width of the board, allowing them to shape a gentle curve into the rail, which improves the aesthetic and enhances performance. Paulownia is known as the aluminium of wood: strong, light and flexible. The combination of paulownia and bamboo creates a board which is feather-light, compared with traditional plywood bellyboards, super-strong and with just the right amount of flex dialled in. As a result, Bambi is incredibly nimble and will deliver miles of smiles in any surf, from knee-high slop to overhead barrels, whether you are young, old, a total beginner or an expert surfer.

Best suited for…

All surfers in all conditions. Particularly recommended for lighter surfers with narrower shoulders or a smaller frame. Riding a Bambi with your arms stretched out, in front of you, is like riding a triathlon bike!


Sustainably sourced paulownia and bamboo sandwich construction. Paulownia is a non-porous wood, meaning that it doesn’t need to be sealed with poisonous epoxy or polyurethane resins. Instead, Kiri boards are finished with three coats of UK grown hemp oil, making them some of the most sustainable surfboards on the planet.


Kiri's paulownia and bamboo are grown on sustainable plantations near Valencia, Spain. This is also where the blanks are assembled. The boards are designed, shaped, engraved and oiled in Cornwall. If ever you decide not to use your Kiri board anymore, just leave it in the garden. In time, it will mulch down and return to the earth, from whence it came!
