CJ’s Ethos

“The open mind is a free mind. I have reinvented my personal quiver of boards from the ground up. Working with shapers Ian Chisholm, Ryan Engle, Eden Saul and Wayne Rich we have created the most functional traditional boards I have ever ridden.

The shapers we work with are the lifeblood of our brand. All from different backgrounds, each specializing in different designs and concepts. All of them are my absolute heroes for different reasons. We have come together as friends and brothers to share in this exciting new technology that is revolutionizing the way a surfboard rides. I’m overwhelmed with thanks and gratitude to work with such an eclectic group of professionals.

On top of that, we have been testing, then building the incredible E-Matrix technology line of surfboards. We have designed and built these wonderful boards from the inside out, allowing us to take full advantage of advanced materials and constructions.

The results are hand-built surfboards that are super strong, properly weighted for their purpose, and are beautiful to look at. Without question, these are the most advanced surfboards I have ever ridden.

All of our boards exude grace and style, with function being the underlying focus of our design by taking the traditional to new performance levels with E-Matrix constructions. If durability and performance are what you’re looking for, then look no further.”
