Stewart Surfboards by Bill Stewart

Bill Stewart SurfboardsAt a time when surfboards were more about function than style, Stewart surfboards bucked the trend by offering hand-crafted, custom surfboards painted with colors that popped and artwork that could have hung in any museum.

The man behind these boards was Bill Stewart, who earned his surfing stripes off the Florida coast in his high school years.

Coming out to San Clemente, California in 1963, Stewart spent his time gilding the waves and learning the craft of caring for and shaping surfboards. He was eventually hired by Hobie, Rick James and South Shore in the 70s.

In 1978 he broke out on his own and started Stewart Surfboards in Laguna Beach.

Throughout the 80s and 90s, Stewart continued to find ways to bring innovation to the surfboard craft and has expanded his business headquarters to San Clemente. Stewart Surfboards has been a mainstay of Laguna Beach, California for over thirty years.

Many shapers look up to Bill Stewart due to his great impact on longboard design as he was the inventor of the 2+1 tri-fin configuration, as well as the Hydro Hull concave design.

Surfboards Offered by Stewart Surfboards

Regardless of your height, weight, or the size of the waves you’ll be surfing, Bill Stewart Surfboards offers a board that will fit you like a glove. The smallest boards are the “Fartknockers“. These boards range from four and a half to six feet and are perfect for those days when the surf isn’t what you’d want it to be.

Bill StewartIn the six to seven foot range are the S-Rail Fish boards, which give surfers a combination of down the line speed mixed the progressive maneuverability that comes with the finely tuned rail.

The S-Winger is one of Bill Stewart’s personal favorites. This board, which comes in models ranging from seven to eight feet in length, mixes the speed of a full quad with the solid feeling of a thruster. This scaled shortboard comes with five fins and is one of Stewart’s best selling surfboards.

The Funboard comes in sizes of seven to eight feet. The board is shaped with a beveled rail and is simply designed to be exactly what it’s name suggests: fun!

Stewart’s boards don’t end there, however. The company also offers a Ten foot HydroGlide board, the nine foot CMP, designed and named after longboard champion Colin McPhillips, and the Boardworks line, which uses thermal epoxy compression technology to make the best surfboard possible. Stewart’s Surfboards can also be ordered to specification.
