Owl Chapman Surfboards

Owl Chapman Surfboards

Owl Chapman was a pioneer in shaping surfboards to match the speed and power of Oahu’s winter-time waves. He’s widely credited as the father of the shortboard revolution and—in the minds of many—is the most influential surfboard shaper to come out of Hawaii. Here, North Shore veterans—and legends in their own right—Rick Williams and Andy St. Onge share their collections of storied Owl Chapman surfboards.
