McCallum Surfboards: In The Shaping Bay
Zane (our delivery driver) gets to see Jeff McCallum weekly. It’s one of the perks of his job. The vast majority of the US Blanks team, however, is busy in our LA factory most days and only gets a glimpse at our finished foam via brief captures on Instagram. Thankfully though, Surfer Magazine took the time to visit McCallum Surfboards recently and conduct short but thorough conversations with the shaper and laminator of the operation, Jeff McCallum and Alex “Superwolf” Villalobos. The boys cover origin story, the value of both the CNC machine and handshaping, and what constitutes “quality” in surfboard manufacturing.
Bravo to McCallum Surfboards for executing a vertically integrated, quality oriented, full production facility and keeping skilled laborers busy. We’re proud to provide you with foam.
