Hurley Surfboards was established in Costa Mesa in 1979. Started by a 23 year old shaper, Bob Hurley, the company was started on the back of Hurley’s success as a shaper. Hurley was a major surfboard manufacturer for 5 years and served many big corporations such as Lightning Bolt, Wind-an-Sea and Wave Tools. Since Bob Hurley had turned his dreams into reality, he started Hurley international with the idea to create that opportunity for other young hopefuls. Now with an all-star pro team that includes, John John Florence, Kolohe Andino and Rob Machado, Hurley is proving worldwide that dreams do come true. Combining music, art and lifestyle together, Hurley encompasses the young surfer vibe, teaming up with up-coming bands, surfers and artists to create exciting surf apparel like the Phantom board short.
