With direct focus on Hawaii waves, the Naupaka is your everyday longboard. The consistent curve in the outline sits perfectly in waves with a bit more power. The curve in the tail third, along with its bottom contours, makes this the most maneuverable log in our line-up. Along with its maneuverability, this board allows for controlled nose rides.
Bottom: Slight Nose Concave to Roll to V

BORN AND RAISED
On the island of Kauai, Carson Myers first took up surfing at the age of thirteen. Instantly hooked, Carson and his friends would often surf eight hours straight when they could. Carson became obsessed with surfing; the sport, the boards, the lifestyle, and the obsession hasn’t slowed down.
After finishing high school, Carson moved to the north shore of Oahu. He worked full-time as a line cook, but was lucky enough to be a “shop grom” for the local shaper Carl Olsen of Two Crows in between his restaurant shifts. While sweeping, cleaning, and helping organize, Carson also got to sit and watch Carl shape. This is when Carson became interested in the “why”. Why this board surf this way, and that board surfs that way. Why the board is doing what it is doing under your feet. With the guidance of Carl, Carson got to shape his first board.
Living in Wahiawa, Carson shapes just down the hill at the Waialua Sugar Mill. With a love for the history of surfboards and the desire to create something that is the best ride of your life, but at the same time beautiful and timeless, he continues to perfect his craft.
