This is a revolutionary universal surfboard database.
A global deterrent directly focused on the reduction of surfboard and wetsuit theft.
SBT utilises chip technology and the power of the internet.
SBT is a sole database for the registration of surfboards for all continents and surfers
It is simple, extremely low cost and effective for a one off fee that deters thieves and aids board insurance policies.
For the very first time surfboards new and used can be registered to their owner
Retailers now have the capability to carry out instant checks, so do insurers and the police.
The chip implant service is available here at The Aggie Surf Shop, St Agnes Cornwall, in all Beach Beat Surfboards and the registration to surfboard-tracker.com can be taken out from the shop or at home in your own time.

A micro chip, the size of a grain of rice, is fixed into the foam core of the surfboard. This is done by drilling a tiny hole into the board when it is being laminated, resining the ‘magic grain of rice’ in, slapping an attractive decal/logo over the top then the board can be finished. The chip ads virtually nothing to the weight of the board and the decal lets people know the board has been chipped.
The decal is a sign to the thieves, saying;
‘don’t half inch this one, its got a tracking chip!’
and also a sign saying;
‘BEACH BEAT Surfboards and The AGGIE SURF SHOP are producing the highest spec boards with every attempt to keep your boards safe, make it easier to insure them and find them if they do go missing.’
Surfboards that don’t already have chips can be chipped here at The Aggie Surf Shop. If your getting a ding repair done why not pay abit extra and get a our factory to insert a SBT chip into your board.
feel free to email us and we can send the SBT fact sheet
Used boards inc vat £15.00 and with NEW BOARDS the cost of the chip is already incorporated in the board so the registration fee to SBT only applies.
To register the new or used board is one fee off subscription of £8.00
(When registering please include ‘The Aggie Surf Shop’ as the outlet where the board was purchased or chipped)
