20 years ago Surftech was cre­ated to bring new tech­nol­ogy to the process of board build­ing. Founder, Randy French, saw that the way boards were being made hadn't changed for over 40 years. The old way wasn't very durable, so a lot of boards ended up in land­fills and the toxic mate­ri­als weren't kind to the envi­ron­ment. He made it his mis­sion to bring rev­o­lu­tion­ary new con­struc­tion tech­nolo­gies to the world.

The Wood Veneer Series was the first tech­nol­ogy, result­ing in beau­ti­ful, durable, pre­cise boards cre­ated with a seam­less con­struc­tion process. It was embraced by many leg­endary shaper/designers and con­tin­ues to be used in select models.

Randy kept push­ing and look­ing for bet­ter mate­ri­als and tech­niques that would enable him to exactly repro­duce mas­ter shapes that were lighter, stronger and more eco­log­i­cally sus­tain­able. The result was the cre­ation of Surftech's Tuflite epoxy com­pos­ite tech­nol­ogy, which was a game-changer in the indus­try. After years of research and test­ing, Surftech was proud to be the first com­pany to offer a real alter­na­tive to the fossil-based foam cores cur­rently being used. The result­ing "Nat­ural Com­pos­ite" core mate­r­ial is made from a renew­able cel­lu­lose fiber that is sus­tain­able and recy­clable. Unlike the com­pe­ti­tion, our Fused-Cell cores are actu­ally water­proof and have remark­able flex prop­er­ties, retain­ing incred­i­ble struc­tural integrity for years of enjoyment.

The evo­lu­tion­ary pro­gres­sion con­tin­ues and Surftech has devel­oped a wide vari­ety of tech­nolo­gies that were each devel­oped with spe­cific char­ac­ter­is­tics in mind. Surftech con­tin­ues to be the SUP leader, and this is why every­one from the world's top design­ers to world-class ath­letes have cho­sen to work with us and together WE ARE SURFTECH!
