I've been building surfboards since I was 12 years old...

 

And almost 50 years later, I'm more passionate and excited about building surfboards than I have ever been.

It completely fascinates me to be able to keep improving boards that already seemed like they were as good as they can get.

TWIN KEEL SERIES

 

There are very few surfboard builders who have our level of expertise and knowledge of the twin keel design. We've been building and riding twin keel design for 15 years now, testing them in all sorts of waves, from knee high beach breaks to double over head Indo barrels, racking up to 3500 hours of design work in each of the models that we now build.

SINGLE FIN SERIES

 

Jim's vast knowledge and experience of single fins goes all the way back to shaping and surfing them in the 70's. Taking on waves like Hawaii's Pipeline, pioneering then unknown Indonesian reefs or taking out heats against surfers like MR on the 70's pro tour. Jim rekindled his interest in single fins about 10 years and since then has been enjoying a whole new level of single fin performance by incorporating modern design features into these classic designs.
