    Dedicated Artisan of the craft.
    Much foam shaped & beautifully transformed with those hands.
    I have one sweet 70’s Surfboards Hawaii pintail gun in the collection that was shaped by him.
    Blessings Mike, for many more years of stylish Craftsmanship!

    I’ve had 9 or 10 new boards since I started surfing 30 years ago, and I always go back to my 5’11” Slingerland, it’s in the middle of the road of twins and thrusters, i’ts beautifully shaped, pure fun!!
    Congratulations to Mr Slingerland for his art. Greetings from Mazatlán. México. Beto Osuna.

    I read that Mike Slingerland can shape an original Surfboardhawaii Nose Rider. Is that correct

      Yes, that is true. Not sure if he still has the license and logos anymore though.

    I surfed for 33 years before moving to the Midwest. I lived in NC and bought a 7’6′ Slingerland shaped pintail Surfboards Hawaii through Whalebone Junction that was a fantastic board. Of 5 boards I had at the time it was the most borrowed by friends. The long FU fin box made it so adjustable for conditions and the slight double concave on each side in the tail gave the board so much thrust. I had it shipped to me in for an epic trip to California and Baja back in the 70s’ . Blacks Beach at triple overhead+ was a dream on that board. It saw about 10 breaks from Trestles all the way to K55. I wish I’d never sold it . I only have a single board left in my late 60s and of the couple dozen I had owned the Slingerland is the one I wish I still owned. If I ever take to surfing again and move back to a coast I’ll have to contact you. Mikes work is the best.
