Surftech, "The original board manufacturing company," was founded in 1989 in Santa Cruz, California by Randy French. A pioneer of composite technologies, Surftech was the first company to introduce composite manufacturing to the surfing, paddling and SUP industry. Surftech's business model has always been about board builders giving them a way to scale and expand their businesses with a seamless solution that complimented their existing lineups. In the early 90's, Surftech partnered with a world-class international factory that matched their commitment to excellence, providing unparalleled capabilities, strong environmental practices, unmatched craftsmanship and most importantly could scale to meet demand.
