Bruce Jones Easy Riding Performance Longboards

Bruce Jones

Bruce Jones has a board building history that is the envy of legends. Starting out at Clark foam in 1962, glueing stringers and then evolving to pre-shaping at the Hobie factory where he learned from that era’s most respected craftsmen: Phil Edwards, Dale Velzy, Terry Martin, John Grey and countless others. He then opened his own shop at Sunset Beach, Ca in 1973. Gaining quite a reputation, Bruce’s technical skills were sought after, shaping for Gordie, Brewer, Russel Vardeman and Ole. Bruce Jone’s iconic shop still remains in the same location on the Pacific Coast Highway where he continues to handshape all of his custom boards himself. He also has a line of molded epoxy sandwich construction surfboards through Boardworks offering his most popular shapes in Boardworks durable lightweight construction.
