Who we are
We are all unique in our own way. And we all want different things from what our surfboard can do for us. You might want to do aggressive turns and throw buckets of spray, while your next door neighbor only chases big waves. And me? I just want to effortlessly glide on the ocean's surface all day long. K58 is here to recognize your unique surfing needs and create your best surfboard yet.
But while our surfing goals vary, we all chase the same feeling - the stoke! We all want to be happy and loved. And this is what makes us the same. So let's celebrate our differences, while acknowledging and trusting that we are one.
How it all started
K58 Surf Designs is a custom surfboard design and production company founded in 2003 and located in San Diego, CA. All K58 surfboards are made by hand to meet the specific and unique needs of each customer.
K58 started in James Mangano's workshop in his home, where he shaped his boards. He had a dream and he had a vision. Since then, the company has been involved in elaborate R&D research, partnered with several prominent team riders, and added an apparel line. And this is just the beginning!
