Hand Shaped Est. 2003 Malibu California

about us

Wooden Surfboards, wall art and furniture, was created by Erik Hurst back in 2003. He created his first wooden surfboard by gluing, clamping, and hand shaping layers of beautiful exotic woods together. Over the years honing in his hand-eye coordination his shaping skills came to life. By 2005 he created a new style and shape and called it the Santa Cruz, named after the Santa Cruz island's off the coast in Malibu Ca, this was a high gloss 1950's vintage Malibu classic replica made with the highest quality certified reclaimed old growth Redwood, which was clear, all heart, and had natural gold flake from Northern California. This type of Redwood is extinct and not commercially available. To maintain this consistent quality, Erik specifically hunted down and found this rare exotic wood by traveling up to Northern California. He then hand selected each length of board by looking for tight grains, finding no knots, no voids, only pure clear dark Redwood. Remarkably, this rare Redwood blended perfectly with Sapele Mahogany from sustainable forests from Africa, which was also used in the Santa Cruz style board as well. By 2008 Erik was well underway with his unique style of wooden surfboard shaping and transitioned to many other different styles of wood creations, such as custom solid wood furniture for bar table tops and coffee tables. Erik's newest unique product is custom laser etching into the wood creations with company logos and personalized family logos as well.

"For me to insure the highest quality and consistency, every wooden surfboard is made with hand selected woods, hand shaped, hand sanded, 18 step clear high gloss, packed and shipped by me." ~Erik Hurst
