Surfboards Hawaii Mike Slingerland Shortboards

There are few things more uncomfortable than watching an established older brand clumsily try to adopt a recent and unfamiliar trend. It’s the branding equivalent of a middle-aged guy rocking a pair of fancy jeans with embroidery on the back pockets. (I love Harbour Surfboards, but their 80s logo redesign is not my…

Ben Aipa for Surfboards Hawaii

Spotted on Craigslist in Paso Robles, California is an interesting Ben Aipa / Surfboards Hawaii single fin. I’d never seen this logo before, nor does Stoked-n-Board’s Surfboards Hawaii page show anything resembling this design. From what I can tell, there isn’t an Aipa signature anywhere on the board, which I believe is unusual…

A Model of Efficiency: Surfboards Hawaii

If you’re in the Orange County / LA area, there’s a cool little Surfboards Hawaii Model A floating around on Craigslist. Link here. It’s not cheap – the poster is asking $725 for the board, which has some obvious discoloration on the deck – but it’s a cool example of an older Surfboards…
