Detroit Surf Co. started with just one t-Shirt in Maui Hawaii in winter (2005-06) and Detroit in the summer to show pride in being from the Motor City.
In Hawaii that winter, everyone asked where I got my shirt from, and where they could BUY one. After hearing this a thousand times, I thought... Hummmm, why am I not selling these? . I trademarked my ideas, and started carrying around a backpack full of shirts with the original classic Detroit Surf Co. logo, and shortly after Detroit Surfboards, Detroit Surf Wear, Surf Detroit logos. I'd sell out every time we went out wearing a shirt, people from all around the country, and world wanted shirts. The backpack full of shirts went to a trunk full of shirts, to van full of stuff, to a house full of more stuff to selling online all around the world.
Today we make Detroit Surf Co. brand Surfboards, Stand Up Paddle Boards right here in DETROIT MICHIGAN with all 100% USA made materials. We're also in production of Snowboards under the brand name Detroit Snowboards, also made 100% in Michigan.
