New Boards in the shop along with our selection of Wake Wood & Motorboat Surf Boards

About Us


Handmade homegrown surf craft from the most hippy town in the Finger Lakes of NY.  Creating truly one of a kind wake surf sleds inspired by the craftsmanship of old and the artistry of the locals.  We strive to go against the commercial distortions of modern business and put our focus on reflecting aesthetics predating the commercial era while maintaining todays performace standards.  Pairing riders with boards that inspire the soul, both on and off the water. 

Artisan Surf

Why Artisan?


Our boards are crafted for the distinguished surfer who wants a one-off wake sled and not your everyday off the shelf ride. Artisan signature boards are hand painted making each one unique.  Whether it be on the water or displayed in your home a Artisan Surf Series board will inspire the soul.

Can I pick the Artwork?


Absolutely!  You can request anything you like on the board and we will do our best to match your order to one of our talented Artists and Bring your vision to life.  Art Costs vary depending on the size and complexity of the piece. 

Made In the USA


Our Custom hand cut and shaped creations are built from select cut cedar, Bass wood and Mahogany.  Wood Boards are stronger than foam cores resulting in a longer life when properly taken care of.

How long does it take to get a board?


Orders are filled in the sequence they are received and usually take 2 to 8 weeks.  Special Artist requests can add time.   We try our best to keep a few boards in inventory and can sometimes shorten the order time.
