About Locus Surfboards

Tyler has been living in Santa Cruz for the past 20 years and has a deep love for and connection with the ocean. As a builder, he's committed to manufacturing Locus Surfboards responsibly, using more sustainable materials and practices.

Locus Surfboards are built by a single pair of hands. Tyler hand shapes, glasses and finishes every board himself. Whether he's building an innovative, performance shape or a classic longboard, Tyler maintains a high bar for environmental responsibility without skimping on quality. Every Locus board uses E.P.S. foam blanks and are glassed using plant-based epoxies. Many Locus boards also use reclaimed wood for stringers and tail blocks acquired through our collaboration projects with Ventana Surfboards and Supplies. Every Locus creation is Ecoboard certified by SustainableSurf.org


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