Hand-Crafted Hollow Wooden Surfboards


**10′-6″ hand-crafted & original, Brewer gun surfboard**
At Haleiwa Surfboard Comapny, we produce authentic hollow wooden surfboards, absolutely true to shape designs by renown shaper Dick Brewer. Each board is unique in the layouts, and types of wood used for the blank. Currently we are making about 10 boards per year, which are fabricated from koa, mango, and other exotic hardwoods.
Lon Klein, the owner of the Haleiwa Surfboard Co. has a diverse background, which encompasses architectural design, and construction, as well as fine woodworking. He is a dedicated surfer, who, at age 66, is …”more stoked than ever about the sport.”
“My main focus, when I was experimenting with various techniques for producing hollow wooden boards, was to create a blank that was super-strong, yet light enough to be maneuverable. Imagine surfing 15′ Sunset on a guitar that has morphed into the perfect board for the occasion…that was my mission. Now, 15 years, and over 200 boards later, I believe I’ve accomplished that mission, with two major plusses: the boards have a unique resonance in the water, they do almost sing…and, we found that the form and shape of the boards, along with a mirror gloss and polish polyester resin finish, sets off the beauty of the wood used beyond anything I could have imagined.
They truly deserve the description, ‘functional art forms’.”
