Jim Dunlop

Jim started surfing in 1966 at Barbers Point, Oahu—later relocating to the east coast as the “shortboard revolution” was in full swing. As a kid in Virginia Beach during the early ’70s, he stripped old boards, re-shaped them, and was hooked. He’s  been building surfboards for over 40 years.search engine optimization At his Jacksonville Beach factory, Jim shapes, paints, glasses, and sands every surfboard by hand in-house. Low quantity—high quality, with a craftsman’s attention to detail.

For a full list of board models, just Google "Surfboards".

Models? We don’t need no stinkin’ models.  Jim handcrafts each surfboard to fit your specific requirements. From high-performance shortboards, to fish, funshapes, and longboards—if you can ride a wave on it, Jim’s already built thousands of ’em.

here's what's been goin' on

an 8’10 for James
What did you do on your time off recovering from your hip replacement??
Well.. I built guitars.. the black one is a replica of Fender’s OG pine Esquire from 1950 (only 5 were built in black)
The blue one is my take on my favorite slide player’s guitars.. Ariel Posen is a beast and worthy of a listen …but the .017 to .064 strings and open C tuning take time to get used to….and yes, I’m a Tele guy.. but i still love my gold top LP’s
