Ventana Surfboards

Hollow wooden surfboards hand-built using recycled and reclaimed materials

We build our boards with a perfectionist’s attention to detail, and every board is built to surf. And they surf well at that!

The materials are mostly recycled or reclaimed, and often have interesting back stories and historical significance. We have built boards using fences, wall studs, historical redwood floor boards and drift wood, for example.

And, we can incorporate your own pieces of wood, metal, shell or other materials that have meaning to you. We also use only Entropy Bio Resin, an outstanding epoxy that replaces petro-chemicals with renewable, bio-based materials.
