Celebrating over 50 years making bords. I have shaped and glassed maybe 3000 boards. Never went back into major production after the robbery we had around 1979. Just a few boards every month.
Here is information for a local group if you want to take day sessions to surf on weekends.

We do product endorsements, repairs of boards, SUPs, windsurfers, etc. plus sell used boards and wetsuits. Also, many of Snake's old team riders often contact him with great stories from the past. I often post them.
