Surftech is high tech. No other manufacturer in the world is producing surfboards this way. The boards are precise computer shaped reproductions of proven designs by the likes of Dale Velzy, Yater, Corky Caroll, Wingnut, Munoz, and Robert August. The boards are laminated with various space age materials to produce a very light, very strong and very beautiful surfboard that rides like the wind.
Surftech has now taken over as the worlds leader in stand-up paddleboards with shapes by Laird, Hamilton, Robert August, and others. The skimboards and waveskis they have added to the line are space age.


Reynolds "Renny" Yater was one of the first commercial surfboard builders in the 1950's. His reputation is such that no further sales pitch is necessary. Just look at the boards. They speak for themselves.


Global Surf Industries is the largest surfboard manufacturer in the world. They became famous for the durable, light, and cheap surfboards called N.S.P's. Many more people have taken up surfing tha last 5 years because of N.S.P's which we have sold by the thousands. There is much more to this company however. Weber, Southpoint, McTavish, Walden are all being made by Global and we have them all in stock.


Santa Cruz is making high- tech composites in the most cutting edge shapes. The G - Deck has become the skateboard of the water. With top pro riders like Christian Fletcher, "Barney" and Matt Archbold riding them you can't go wrong. The Pumpkin Seed series are probably the best small board shapes ever done for the east coast waves and our best sellers.
