WAVE CUTTER WAS DESIGNED WITH THE 1960'S SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF CULTURE IN MIND.


 


OUR STORY


GROWING UP IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA DURING THE 1960'S, IT WAS ALL ABOUT SURFING. SURFING HAD BECOME A CULTURAL OBSESSION. THIS LIFESTYLE SPAWNED A WHOLE NEW WAVE OF MUSIC, MOVIES, TV SHOWS AND EVEN CLOTHING LINES SUCH AS 'O.P.' OR OCEAN PACIFIC.


SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA HAD SOME OF THE BEST SURF BEACH LOCATIONS SUCH AS MALIBU, ZUMA, HUNTINGTON, REDONDO AND HERMOSA BEACHES AND ALL ALONG THE COAST AND DOWN TO SAN DIEGO.

THE MUSIC EXPLODED ONTO THE SCENE WITH GROUPS SUCH AS THE BEACH BOYS WITH SUCH HITS AS "SURFING U.S.A." AND THEIR INFAMOUS BALLAD "SURFER GIRLS". DICK DALE AND THE DEL-TONES WERE EARLY PIONEERS OF SURF STYLE MUSIC AND CREATED HITS SUCH AS "PIPELINE" AND THE INSTRUMENTAL SONG " LET'S GO TRIPPIN". OTHER GROUPS SUCH AS THE SAFARIES WITH THE INFAMOUS DRUM INTRO ON "WIPE OUT" BECAME THEME SONGS AND THE SPIRIT OF THE SURF CULTURE.




THE "WOODY" AUTOMOBILE BECAME THE SURFER'S CHOICE TO DRIVE AND WAS A CROSS BETWEEN A SEDAN AND A PANEL TRUCK. TODAY, THE WOODY IS A CLASSIC AND A VERY SOUGHT AFTER VEHICLE BY CAR COLLECTORS.

HOLLYWOOD JUMPED INTO THE BEACH FEVER WITH MOVIES SUCH AS "BEACH PARTY" AND "BEACH BLANKET BINGO" STARRING ANNETTE FUNICELLO AND FRANKIE AVALON AS WELL AS A TV SERIES DEVELOPED AND TARGETED DIRECTLY FOR THE SURF CULTURE WITH "GIDGET" IN 1959, STARRING A YOUNG SANDRA DEE WHO PLAYED A SURFER GIRL WHO IS IN LOVE WITH A LOCAL SURFER CALLED "MOON DOGGIE," PLAYED BY JAMES DARREN.

IT IS THIS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF CULTURE THAT I GREW UP WITH AND NOW WANT TO SHARE WITH MY WOOD DESIGN ON A BODY BOARD FOR TODAY'S GENERATION.


FINEST QUALITY


EPS - Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a thermoplastic, closed-cell, lightweight, rigid-foam plastic. The low thermal conductivity, high compressive, strength and excellent shock absorption properties of EPS make it an ideal material for body boards and 100% rashless!

HDPE– High Density Polyethylene ‘HDPE’ slick is used on the bottom of the board to enhance the performance characteristics of the board. Not only does HDPE slick add strength to the body board it also gives the body board a resistance free riding surface to enhance speed and maneuverability on the wave.


WAVE CUTTER

The Wave Cutter Body Board was an inspiration brought on by a mutual love for the ocean and for making surf culture reign on in the hearts of customers young and old.

Whether you lived the 1960's Southern California Surf scene or not, Wave Cutter Body Boards bring it all back, to the basics.
