Steve Walden is probably one of the most prolific board shapers California has ever produced. One of the most creative shapers to ever pick up a planer, Steve as never stopped innovating in his quest to bring us the ultimate ride.
Walden can be credited with an amazing list of contributions to surfing, not to mention being the world record holder for the longest noseride ever recorded in competition at 25.5 seconds. The Turbo Hull, Strato Flex, Carbon railed stringerless longboards, wing tail, the patented Magic bottom design and more can be attributed to Steve's work.

When Al and Rusty talk about the development of the modern longboard, they both point to Steve. If you look back at who was shaping the high performance boards for Lightning Bolt, CI, HIC and Local Motion, you shouldn't be surprised to see Steve's name on the stringer. Walden started shaping at 13 and has been mowing foam ever since. With over 20,000 boards hand shaped and the wildly popular Magic design to his credit, we can't wait to see what Steve will do next.
