JuiceBox Surfboards

Inspired by the true craftsmen of the industry, my goal has been to embrace and learn the craft from start to finish and constantly strive for higher quality both in design and aesthetic.  I have been fortunate enough to study alongside master board builders and learn the fundamental techniques in shaping, glassing, sanding, resin work and design.

Pacwave Surf Shop

Pacific Wave Surf Shop

Pacific Wave Surf Shop is a family owned business that opened in 1993 on Pacific Avenue, in the heart of downtown Santa Cruz. After the Loma Prieta earthquake changed much of downtown, Pacific Wave was able to move into the empty and damaged old historical building that was once the county bank in 1895. Inspired by other local surf shop, but also by the ever growing surf and skate culture that embodies Santa Cruz, Pacific Wave has taken the local surf shop mentality to a whole new level.

Ward Coffey Shapes

Ward Coffey Shapes

Let's face it folks, most people like comets, rockets and meteors, loud bangs and fireworks. Admittedly, there have been very little of these pyrotechnics at Ward Coffey Shapes over the last 25 years. I've been content to quietly hang my shingle, listen to my customer's wants and desires, and go into my hobbit hole and produce the goods. It seems to work and I thank you all for it.

Benjmark Surfboards

Benjmark Surfboards

Benjmark Surfboards was founded by Rebecca Benjamin in Santa Cruz, CA. In 2015 Benjamin began working for 2 Mile Surf Shop in Bolinas, CA and it was this job and the love of surfing that would later have Benjamin moving to Santa Cruz in 2018 to finish her degrees in Computational Mathematics and Legal Studies. In 2020 when the pandemic hit and Benjamin was finishing her thesis on the Hydrodynamics of Surfboard Design, 2 Mile Surf Shop burnt to the ground so instead she found herself spending hours at Almar Surf Works learning shaping and resin work from Michel Junod and Jon Henderson (Strive Surfboards). The fusion of mathematics and surfing blend together in Benjamin’s unique perspective of approaching the water and the crafts which she creates.
