The Jud Lau Surfboards logo is based on the waves and the surfboards, and the humans who make the boards, and also the humans who ride the boards on the waves! They are all in a circle, symbolic of the cyclical nature of everything in our universe. At first glance, most people do not see the surfboards, the humans, or the waves in the design. Most peoples eyes will focus on the reverse part of the image, but look long enough and you will see them!
Jud Lau Surfboards are all about super high quality craftsmanship and second to none customer service.
Feel free to simply pick one of our signature models, give us your height and weight, and let us dial in your volume and dimensions; or give us all of your exact specifications down to the last detail!
We can make anything you can imagine, and normally have it ready to ride in 3-5 weeks!

Over the years he has shaped boards for many of the world's elite, including Dusty Payne, Makua Rothman, Kai Barger, Tom Dosland, Tai Vandyke, Ulu Napeahi, JD Irons, and Kawai Lindo.
With over 30 years of surfing experience around the world, competing at the amateur and then the professional level, Jud Lau is an elite surfer-shaper. Now in his mid-forties, he continues to push the envelope of high performance surfing, through both his surfing and this shaping!
