About Locus Surfboards


Locus Surfboards builds 100 percent hand shaped alternative surfboards of the highest quality while always striving for the least environmental impact. 

Tyler Hopkins started designing boards with the sole purpose of extracting the most possible fun within a given set of conditions.
The desire emerged from the need to fill a void within his existing stagnant quiver.
“I wanted to build high performance boards that were easier to paddle, easier to catch waves, and could be ridden in a variety of conditions…, ultimately bringing performance surfing to the average surfer. ”
All Locus Surfboard models are developed, tested, and refined by Tyler and the Locus team in waves both locally and internationally.

Locus Surfboards supports American manufacturing through sourcing materials, and products made in the U.S.A.
