About us

We believe fantastic companies are built by fantastic people. That's why our culture is the foundation of all we do and our values the bricks of the foundation

The Surfboard Story

We are a paytech company that aims to change the payment landscape, one tap at the time. Founded in 2019 by people with great experience in the payment and security industry, we have built a reputation for cloud-based payments in physical environments.

Our team is made up of skilled and passionate professionals who are dedicated to helping our partners and merchants alike to succeed. We value collaboration and innovation, and we are constantly seeking out new ways to improve and grow.

After starting up in Stockholm, Sweden, one of our co-founders moved back to Chennai, India, opening up a second office. So our current employee number of around 50 surfers are located in Stockholm and Chennai, as well as some remote workers in other cities.

The paytech company that's changing the game

The leaders in any field make their success look easy. But beneath the surface, they're in constant motion, critiquing their own performance, setting new goals, and continually reevaluating the most basic assumptions about how they approach their work. We're still in the early stages of our growth, and many of our biggest challenges lie ahead.

At Surfboard Payments we're not satisfied with the status quo. We believe there's always a better way to do things. That's why we're constantly reevaluating our approach to payments. We're committed to providing our partners with the best possible experience, and we're always looking for new ways to improve.

We are fully focused and dedicated to offer our partners the best possible payment product in the market

Your challenges make us better

Our partners' challenges are our greatest teachers. They force us to constantly revamp and learn new things.Every partner comes to us with a unique set of needs and challenges. This forces us to think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions. We can't rely on the same old playbook; we have to be constantly adapting and evolving.

This constant learning and growth is what makes us a better company. It allows us to provide our partners with the best possible service and support. It also allows us to stay ahead of the curve and continue to be a leader in the industry.

In the process of solving our partners' challenges, we learn a lot about ourselves and our business. We learn about our strengths and weaknesses, and we learn what works and what doesn't. We also learn a lot about the industry and the needs of our customers.


Any use-case, any setup, any partner

We believe that every partner we work together with will help us grow as a team and as a company. All the challenges that we face, the obstacles we need to climb and the unfortunate errors that occurs is part of the journey to become the very best version of ourselves and our company.

Where a POS provider in a fast-paced environment like a restaurant may face different challenges than a journal system provider for a dentist clinic, we can all agree on. Where our partners are experts in their area, we need to be expert in ours. We provide payment solutions to independent software providers, meaning we need to support any possible use-case in any possible environment. From self-checkout kiosks in a dentist clinic to a card terminal for thousands of transactions each day in a large restaurant chain, our partners help us evolve.

We always strive to be helpful and work closely together with our partners. Launching a project together with anything from discover workshops and weekly meetings, soft launches and pilot projects, we want to make a difference in our relationship. We want to make our partners feel comfortable from start to finish, from standing on that surfboard the very first time to successfully surf any wave coming at you is what we want to achieve together.

With our onboarding service, logistics center and focus on customer journey in card-present payment environments, we want to be the payment provider of your choice.

Arias Home of Hope

Dream big regardless of circumstances

In the heart of India, amidst the bustling streets and vibrant colors, lies a sanctuary of hope and resilience – the Arias Home of Hope. This haven, nestled amidst the chaos, provides a lifeline for HIV-positive children, offering them a place of love, care, and education. Arias Home of Hope is more than just a school and an orphanage; it's a family. It's a place where children, once ostracized and shunned, find acceptance and belonging. Here, they are not defined by their illness but by their potential.

The school, with its dedicated teachers and nurturing environment, provides these children with the tools they need to thrive in life. They learn not just academic skills but also the values of compassion, empathy, and self-belief. The orphanage, a warm embrace for these vulnerable children, offers them a sense of security and stability. It's a place where they can be themselves, free from fear and stigma.

The children of Arias Home of Hope are not just survivors; they are dreamers. They dream of a future free from prejudice, where their HIV-positive status is not a barrier but an inspiration.

Surfboard Payments, with its commitment to social responsibility, is proud to sponsor Arias Home of Hope. Through this partnership, we are helping to provide these children with the care, education, and support they need to reach their full potential. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these remarkable children, ensuring that the Arias Home of Hope continues to shine as a beacon of hope amidst adversity.
