    ABOUT US

    South Bay Board Co. is a family owned and operated Board & Beach Company. We realized our industry was prioritizing the profits of big box stores and surf shops over YOU, the customer. Off the rack prices in shops these days are OBSCENE!

    We knew we could make way better boards for beginners and intermediate surfers and paddlers, so we had no choice but to send it - and we are very happy we did!

    Our mission is simply to provide the absolute best quality materials and premium performance focused shapes to you without breaking your bank account. We wanted to ensure that if you did decide to spend your hard earned money on an epic new SBBC board, that you would be absolutely stoked on your order, from the unboxing all the way to the last session with it out in the water!
