Ventana Surfboards - Santa Cruz, California

Ventana Surfboards

Hollow wooden surfboards built by hand using mostly recycled/reclaimed materials

I like to build my crafts with a lot of attention to detail, but don’t be fooled, every board is built to surf. And they surf well at that! Not only are the materials mostly recycled or reclaimed, they usually also have an interesting story. I have built boards using fences, wall studs, floor boards, and drift wood for example.
