Hollow Wooden Surfboards

Each board is a one-of-a-kind, lightweight, surfable work of art. They are hollow, wooden and crafted by hand in Santa Cruz, California by master craftsman Martijn Stiphout. Free U.S. Shipping.

We incorporate historic and exotic reclaimed woods from our upcycle partners, such as guitar offcuts, boat hulls, floor boards, even wood from a redwood hot tub. We can also include abalone, jade, turquoise and other precious materials. Our methods synthesize traditional design and modern techniques. And our boards are made to surf, and surf well, even if they live out their lives adorning the walls of collectors.

Each board comes with a special edition of our standard Save-a-Surf Wax Box. This version includes two vent plug screws for your new surfboard!

All boards include free U.S. shipping and can be insured and shipped elsewhere in the world, as well. For custom surfboards, learn more here. Read our FAQ here for answers to your questions.
