Meet The Maker // Keith Shelley

Like the stories of many artisans, Huntington Beach-based woodworker Keith Shelley unintentionally launched his handmade skateboard business when he handcrafted his first two boards as gifts for his twin sons on their first birthday. Party-goers marveled over the vintage oak design, and before the local skateboarder-surfer could sweep up the shavings, he was taking orders from friends. Since then, the party has yet to be over for Surf City Skateboards. In fact, it's just getting started. 

An Arizona native and sworn desert hater, Shelley awaited summer every year—not for the scorching 100-plus degree temps, but for family vacations to Southern California. The Shelleys' westbound adventures often landed them in Surf City with relatives, which meant abundant surf and skate seshes. Having embraced skateboarding at the budding age of three, Shelley's affinity with HB boarding culture developed naturally. He told his skeptical father, "Dad, I'm going to buy a house at the beach," and at the ripe age of 18, he made the move to SoCal.
