Formed in 2016, Trimcraft is a collaborative family of shapers with the goal of furthering the tradition of hand-shaping surfboards. We believe that a thoughtful and hands-on approach to surfboard building is the best way to create both a magic board and a truly connected experience in the ocean.
Trimcraft’s goal is to offer high quality hand shaped surfboards designed by masters, and built by the next generation. Producing hand shaped surfboards and sharing the experience gained is something that we feel is a sacred path, and want to share that with future generations of both surfers and shapers alike. Today we find ourselves in an industry where the vision, craft, and lifestyle is sold, but rarely supported by real hand shaped surfboards. We are the only brand focused on 100% hand shaped surfboard production in the modern age, and we are excited to keep alive the flame that has brought us so much fulfilment and joy.
Each Trimcraft model was designed by our lead shapers, then shared and taught to the team based in California, New Jersey and Oregon. Some models are new designs created for Trimcraft, and some are replicas of old magic boards. The stories that connect all of our shapers and models are long and winding, and even more exciting, continually unfolding.
