Russell Surfboards was established in 1967 in Newport Beach. Since then we been through many transitions of surfing and surfboard building. We build classic and modern surfboards by hand from start to finish. All aspects of manufacturing are done in our own glass shop in Costa Mesa, CA. We strive for consistency, quality, and innovation in our boards and we continue to perfect that ideal. We have a retail shop and show room on the Balboa Peninsula right in front of Blackies surf spot. On any given day, (especially the good ones) you'll catch a few of the Russell guys surfing out front.
