The last round of Darkwood Series Ultimates lasted maybe three weeks before they marched out the door under the arms of grinning customers. Since then, we've come out with a few new series' of boards that have also sold incredibly well. But there was something about the Darkwood Series that struck us as simple and elegant. We circled back to our favorite longboard for another go at it to try out another batch of daring color combinations.
We're the only surfboard company that will let you trade your board back in for full value after you ride it, period. Most shops won't even give you credit for it. So what happens when we get a board traded back in for something else?
Surfboard art has been around since the foam blank was launched for full scale production at the turn of the 60's. The wooden boards before that had their own aura and beauty about them. As surfboards became more and more personalized and customized by their owners, board builders began to add an artistic approach to their boards, hiring artists and skilled glassers to paint and tint their boards.
Back in 2014 we launched our second noserider model with some solid fanfare. The Ladle stayed pretty low key, quietly fitting in with the rest of the longboards in our showroom racks. 2017 brought our noserider concept back to the shaping bay for something that would pay respect to the heritage of the classic noserider and put it in the limelight where it belongs.
We're incredibly blessed to live where we do, lead the lives we live, and love the people we hold close. To be frank, it's more than a blessing because we're the lucky ones. The men here are acknowledging this, and are setting out to surf a hundred waves for an incredible cause.
We're getting down to the wire for the 8th annual 100 Wave Challenge! Our team is 12 members strong and our goal is to raise $20000, so almost $1700 a piece. The last time we talked, you guys helped us raise $2000 in less than 72 hours.
This event will be held in Del Mar at Powerhouse Park (next to Jakes Restaurant.) We'll have our full quiver lined up on the north end of the lawn and an Ez-Up for catching a breather between surfs. We firmly believe that the customer experience is greatly enhanced when you get a chance to ride it before you buy it.
At Degree33 Surfboards, we don’t take the 100 Wave Challenge lightly. We don’t take the Boys to Men Mentoring Network lightly. When September rolls around, Degree33 Surfboards is absolutely FROTHING to create a better future for San Diego’s at-risk youths.
We're absolutely FROTHING over this new trio called the "Mexican Blanket Series" with a carefully selected bundle of some of our shop favorites. While they're most impressive in summer conditions when shortboards aren't enough foam and crowds make longboards a little tough to swing around, each of these boards have remained go-to's year round through some solid swell.
