Barrier Waterman LLC is based in Nags Head, North Carolina, USA


About Us

Barrier Waterman LLC is owned by Phill Lloyd, an Australian native who has grown up in Surf Life Saving Australia and has been heavily involved in ocean rescue and ocean based competition his entire life. After moving permanently to the USA Phill found that no one could match the quality of the surf craft coming from Australia. Consistent weight and strength along with perfectly computer shaped boards are why we teamed up with Dolphin Surf Craft in Australia and the Canadian Lifesaving Society to sell Dolphin Surf Craft, JM Paddleboards and other surf/life saving related accessories.

A container from Australia to Canada and USA lands every year. We have boards and skis in Southern CA, Central NJ Shore, Nags Head NC and Daytona Beach FL. You can arrange pick up from any of these locations or we can ship via domestic freight companies. We advise against shipping as damage occurs regularly and it's very expensive. We also have a personal delivery system/run on the east coast a few times per year, normally in the winter and spring. This is safer and normally cheaper than domestic freight, but we cannot guarantee exact delivery date at time of purchase. 

BW (as we have become affectionately known) is a lifestyle for us.  It was created out of a love and respect for not only ocean rescue but a healthy lifestyle. Our customers are more like family who we enjoy seeing every year at local and national competitions. We hope to add you to our already awesome family!
