I believe that true success is marked by how well you identify with the individual surfer.
By going on a journey of discovery with each and every person I make boards for and finding out what’s going to be the best surfboard for them. By taking each person as a separate entity, one at a time, case by case. By asking the right questions, and really listening to them.
At the end of each day, my ultimate desire is to give each surfer something one-of-a-kind for their own surfing journey. For me, surfboard models are just the beginning, the starting place, the jumping-off points that commence a beautiful journey.
I look forward to working with you to detail the ideal custom surfboards to take you to the next level, equipping you for the journey and maximizing your stoke in the water.
By custom surfboard we mean that Todd will take the time to consult with you directly, finding out about your surfing journey, profile, target conditions, current level of experience, and surfing goals in order to determine with you which board model, dimensions, construction, and other specs will most effectively meet your needs and equip you for your best possible surfing journey.
While Todd does design many “concept” or one-off boards specifically for a certain individual surfers, this “custom order” does not necessarily entail that. The vast majority of the time it simply involves having him guide you into the right board for you based on his 27 years of experience working with a wide variety of surfers and his expertise on how his shapes work and which configuration of ingredients will translate to your particular needs and situation.
Many surfers say, “I’m not good enough to need a custom board”. The truth is that having Todd walk with you through detailing your board to be right for you is equally as important to the beginner, intermediate or seasoned surfer at any stage of their surfing progression, enhancing the stoke you enjoy during those precious hours in the waves.
Our custom boards are the same price as the stock boards. We simply believe in offering direct interaction with Todd in detailing your board if you so desire.
We are committed to making highest quality, custom surfboards, manufactured from start to finish in our factory in Ventura, CA. Surfboards built by hand in the USA, using highest grade materials, are more costly and labor intensive to produce. Yet, this is the model that enables the shaper to maintain essential hands-on interaction with the design and production process, and which sustains the synergy of shaper and surfer for the best possible equipment.
