The passion of building surfboards – Portrait of Lon Klein


Lon Klein is the owner of the Haleiwa Surboard Company. His work consists of architectural designing, construction as well as fine woodworking. Because of this love to surf his main focus is producing hollow wooden surfboards.

The art pieces he creates are made of exquisite hawaiian hardwoods and truly deserve the description ‚functional art forms.‘

Bulding surfboards is a passion that keeps him motivated day by day at his age.
