My love for the ocean is how we got started. Strand Boards® was born out of a need. We live close to the beach and were remodeling our home. With three kids under age 5, we wanted a water play feature for the days we didn’t want to go to the beach. For the days we did go, we wanted a place to wash the sand off before coming inside. Lastly, we wanted to bring the beach vibe home, and what better way to do that than with a surfboard. And so, the surfboard shower idea was born. To our surprise, finding a surfboard shower was harder than we thought and we didn’t like anything we saw in the market, quality-wise. We went on to make a shower precisely to our liking and specifications. Pretty soon, friends were saying “I want one,” and we knew others would too.
Enter Strand Boards®! We chose the name Strand because it means the land bordering the sea, shore and beach. Our showers are entirely original in that you can’t find similar styles—
with the plumbing integrated inside the surfboard (patent pending)—anywhere else. In the short time since Strand Boards® has been around, we’ve expanded into making other items, such as surfboard chandeliers, decorative boards and surfboard furniture. All of our products are handmade, hand-shaped, hand-painted and made right here in the sunny South Bay. This is really important when curating a one-of-a-kind piece that is customized to each client and their needs. We were our own very first customer and knew others would love and appreciate the process of customization too.
Strand Boards donates a portion of our profits to ocean-friendly causes. We are big fans of the work done by Heal the Bay.
