Don Hansen Classic California Longboards

Don Hansen

Hansen Surfboards was established in 1961 on Oahu's famous North Shore by Don Hansen. In 1962, Don moved the shop from the small shack on Kawela Bay to a larger building just across the street from Cardiff Reef in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Ca. It was here that Don's surfboard shaping business really began to grow. By the mid-1960's, Hansen Surfboards was shipping surfboards to many parts of the world. Many of Don Hansen's original shapes are still available today. Among them are the 50/50 and the Performance Noserider that Boardworks is proud to offer in our light and durable epoxy construction.
