Santa Monica

Timmy's experience really helped me get to the core of what I wanted in a board. He was very communicative throughout the entire process from finalizing the size, shape, and weight of the board to the final graphics I wanted on the board. I was very satisfied with the final product. Timmy's ability and design aesthetics is right up there with the best.



Not only does Timmy do a fantastic job at board repairs but he even makes customs! I came to him with a concept and he started working on it right away. He finished the project more quickly than I expected and the board looked exactly like I wanted. If you need a quick repair or custom board, Timmy is your guy. I couldn't be happier with my board.



The board works well on rail and is speedy. Definitely a versatile board to have in the quiver. Works in one-foot mush to 6-foot heavy beach break. Totally stoked on the board. I'm very impressed with Timmy's turnaround time and his attention to detail.
