The surfboard shapers and designers at Infinity, consist of master craftsman Steve Boehne and his two sons Dan and Dave. The Boehne family tree takes a lot of pride in the heritage that they bring to each shape. Steve, who taught the rest of the crew the many lessons
in sculpting foam, shaped and glassed his first board in 1960 at the age of 13. Steve discovered surfing in 1959. His first board was a balsa Velzy -Jacobs. He surfed Torrance Beach and Palos Verdes Cove. The early surfing culture was strong in “South Bay” even before the Beach Boys records. He built about a hundred boards in his garage until 1968 when he went to work shaping for Gordie Surfboards. Gordie was a master craftsman and really helped Steve refine his classic longboard shapes.
Shortboards exploded on the scene around ’69 and Steve shaped about 50 boards a week for several shops in Huntington Beach for the next couple of years. He and Barrie were married in 1971 and together, they opened the first Infinity Surf Shop. It was in an old gas station on 5th and PCH in Huntington beach. The hand painted sign boasted perfect surfboards, hopefully that meant perfectly suited.
We continue and try to stay true to our roots and make perfect surfboards. We pride ourselves on making the most versatile range of boards for all kinds of surfers. Shortboards, Longboards, SUP’s, Retro, Tandem, Waveski we make it all! All by hand right here in Southern California.
Infinity Surfboards has always been “MADE OUT WEST”.
