Are you looking for a board with more soul than a hunk of foam?

Are you looking for a board that represents something other than Chinese molding technology?

This board can be seen at Gorge Performance in Portland, Oregon.

Have you ever ridden anything where your stoke starts building as soon as you unzip your boardbag?

Here at 42 Surfboards, we are American surfers shaping wood surfboards. That's all we do. We shape boards that are beautiful, unique, and are than something you just surf on. Although we know that you will love surfing it.

42 Surfboards are hand-shaped from blanks that we build ourselves. Our blanks are as organic as they come and at 42, your surfboard blank isn’t going to kill anyone. Our blanks are built from sustainably harvested local wood and are chambered as radically as any in history.

This could be your new magic board. It is fast, loose, and slippery. At the same time, because it is wood instead of foam, it has the drive and carry of a much larger board. It is faster and more stable than anything in its size in foam. With low rocker and full rails, it will get you out the back easier, into waves earlier, and mach'ing down the line towards yet another record length ride. In other words, our goal is for you to make long fast waves.

Like all 42 Surfboards, you will will notice how your Twin Keel builds and holds speed. With the low rocker and single concave bottom, this board will be among the fastest in the water in anything from double ankle to double overhead plus. With the 100% organic core, an illustrious Resin Research crystal clear epoxy finish, and heart-stopping abalone inlays, your Fish is certain to be the most beautiful board on the beach.
