Old stock Clearance SALE!

I have these two fish taking up space in my shop.

Will sell them for $500 no fins.  They have Lockbox fin boxes.

These are classic style w/Volan bottoms. 

Shabby Chic gloss panel decks w/distressed look.

The white/blue is 6' and the rust/green/black is 5'6"


I made this board a few days ago.  It's a Fish Egg with a incut rail and  a stealth cut tail.  I like it!  Pretty groovy.  I'll post more when it's getting closer to being completed.

David's double sunburst

Our friend at FFF David stopped in to pick up his board yesterday.  David is a local Ventura artist who had a custom board in mind with some color's and design.  He's getting all his ducks in a row to start a new chapter in his life as a English teacher in Ecuador.  A few things on his list like some new boards are taken care of.  Enjoy your new stick and your new home base.  Stoked to build a board for you, this dude is Super Pumped!!

Custom Bliss

My buddy Steve picking up his new 9'2" Is Is.  After waiting patiently while I was in Ireland and Mammoth, he finally got his new custom yesterday at San O (the place with a $15 day use).  The board looked awesome, hamajang bottom with a striped nose and h/d t-band.


All orders shaped and in the glassing stage, I'll start posting pictures of laminations this next week.

Keep your eyes peeled at to see the new Boarddesign inventory they have ordered!

Tool's box

So, I was talking with my buddy RS today and amongst chatting he says his truck is broke down and he hasn't been able to go anywhere in a week.  I asked him what the problem is and he explains that the spark plug wires were vandalized.  I'm like "OK, put some new ones on".  He tells me that he's got a mobile mechanic coming over tonight to take a look.  No Way!  I'll be over in 15.  I get over to his house and take a look at his truck and sure enough the vandals are rats who left some nuts on top of his distributor and opted for wires instead.  Bingo let's go get you some wires.  We return from NAPA with the wires and I ask him "got some screwdrivers and tools"?

This is what he brought me!

So, yeah... Got it fixed and RS is mobile again.

Back to work!

OK, thanks for all the patience!  I'm back to work now and will be calling everyone who is in line waiting to get their boards.  I had a great vacation and feel rejuvenated.  

This weekend I was cleaning my garage and had to move all my wife's boards out of the way to get to my board rack.  She is spoiled, I don't have a quiver like that and thats not all of them!

Vacation time!

Spending the week at Mammoth with my family.  Sorry for the lack of updates, I will get back to it when I return home.  Thanks for the patience of those waiting for boards, I will get to business when I return next monday.  There is snow BTW!! LOTS!

Ryan Merritt

East coast team manager/rider Ryan Merritt pulling in for some.  
Thanks guy's for your support and stoke on the boards!

Steven Mangiacapre

Here's Boarddesigns newest team rider Steven Mangicapre winning the Surfing America USA Championships.  I'm stoked to have Steven riding the boards, he was actually riding his Is Is by choice before he was part of the team.  Steven also placed fourth in the Belmont Pro recently.  My new east coast team includes Brad Rose, Hunter Lupton, Steven and Team Manager Ryan Merritt.  


Tony gets some on his 5'8" Isish quad

Ian Zamora snapped some nice ones of Tony at some secret rocky beach.  Nice rides Tony!
T-ride is the kid to watch, he charges.

Later Ireland

On my way home, it's been fun.  Enjoy the new boards and I look forward to building some more next year.  Get the last of the stock boards from Paul if you can!


Glossing shots of this Hamajang for Irish Andy.  He stopped by three times while I was here, he'd been borrowing my board I left here and was stoked on it.  Would have liked to catch a surf with him just never had a chance.  Next time.

Tales from Paul's shed

This Mac/EVE inspired board is getting it's buttons done
