Becker Surfboards (www.beckersurf.com) has been making hand shaped surfboards in Hermosa Beach, Ca since 1974’. Since that time over 100,000 boards have gone through their factory doors. Becker has been around long enough to have seen all sorts of surfboard trends come and go, and as a result they have developed a keen eye for differentiating between mere trend or true part of our sport.
As stand up paddle surfing made its way to the mainland, many companies were skeptic of its legitimacy. Becker however, was quick to realize that S.U.P was not a trend that would quickly disappear. Becker began working with blank manufacturers to create a reliable supply chain to ensure that they could meet the markets demands. As S.U.P. has gained momentum, Becker has worked to create a niche for themselves in the stand up market, both as a leading S.U.P shaper and retailer.
Becker Surfboards offers various S.U.P models of their own, with a
range of boards for everything from high performance wave riding, to
distance paddling and entry level boards. Becker’s shapers and team
riders have been at work refining their popular “Jelly Fish” model, a
very maneuverable performance shape designed for wave riding. All of
Becker’s retail locations, including Beckersurf.com, offer a great
selection of S.U.P. boards and gear at the best prices around.
addition to their own models, Becker has collaborated with Ron House,
Surftech, and Laird Hamilton, to offer a full range of S.U.P. boards to
meet every ability level and price range. Becker has positioned
themselves as a true one-stop-shop for all things stand up paddle. In
addition to boards, Becker carries a full range of paddles, traction,
and accessories. On top of their great selection, Becker has a team of
dedicated employees who can answer all of your stand up paddle
questions and get you dialed in with the right gear for your needs.
