Happy Customers - Neilson Surfboards

We’ll be throwing a bunch of pictures on here of Neilson Surfboard customers. One, to show off some boards and happy customers, but also to give a sense of what people are riding.


About neilsonsurfboards

I started shaping surfboards when I was 16 years old and ended up selling that first board to one of my neighbors. My big break came a few years later when I got a job shaping full time for Quiet Flight surfboards. I shaped about four thousand surfboards before burning out and leaving that company. At that point I went back to massage therapy full time and shaping surfboards part time for a few select surfers and close friends. After sailing the Caribbean for a year in 2000 when I came back I went back to shaping my own private label full time and doing massage therapy part time. The progression of names or labels was first “Sugar Cane” in the 70’s inspired by trips to Mexico and traveling in a bus cross country and seeing all the sugar cane growing there. Then “Quiet Flight” in the 80’s and then “Creative Visions” which then became “Neilson” surfboards in the 2000’s. I still make some boards using the Creative Visions name and unique mandala art work created by Courtney Davis. I’m up around the 10,000 mark for surfboards shaped and crazy as it sounds I’m still learning new things and still improving what I’m doing. Still love to surf and try and ride different shapes all the time! View all posts by neilsonsurfboards

    Need to include height and weight of riders for this(what people are riding,etc) to be useful. I hate the surfer/board analysis in the mags with no dimensions on the surfer using it.

    SrfGtr, good point. Skill level comes into play as well so there are a lot of different variables. What works for one guy at one skill level may not work for another of the same weight/height.

    That, and it’s just hard to keep track of that info and correlate it to the correct photos.

    Thanks for the feedback though.

    This board has worked unreal. took me two to three sessions just to catch up with it.As I have gotten older I remember older surfers always telling too let the board do the work. Now I understand, Thanks Tom. Tom used to make my boards @qf and have known him for many years, sometimes you must go back to go forward, I feel as though with this board that I have made the right decision. Only with a craftsman of Toms caliber are you going to reach the next level. Thank you Tom Oh bye the way a 158lbs. 5’10 and a little out of shape. Thank again Tom. the muckster
