I discovered my love for surfing in the breaks around Carpinteria when I was 12 years old. Obsessed with board design, I spent my teenage years scouring Craigslist, constantly trying out different boards, selling them, and repeating the cycle. During my second year of college, I began experimenting with building my own boards, and I instantly fell in love with the shaping and glassing process.

Since then, I've been on a mission to perfect my craft. Countless hours have been spent honing my skills, fueled by the stoke of creating high-quality surfboards. Along the way, I've developed an unwavering focus on quality and meticulous attention to detail. Every board that leaves my hands is built to perform and built to last, with a finish that reflects the respect I have for the craft and the surfer who will ride it. At Leland Shapes, "high quality" isn't just a mantra - it's the foundation of everything I do.
