When I first got my board I was really nervous about how light it was. Quickly on my first surf those nerves were calmed. The board is electric and just feels so much livelier than a PU board. Aside from the board itself, I think it’s important to mention how knowledgeable and reliable the DA team is. So cheers and much gratitude for your help.

Great board in a variety of conditions: the board works particularly well with the FCS2 H4 thruster set and even better/spicier as a quad, with rear performers, even in well overhead punchy surf. I custom ordered mine a little stretched out at 6-0 and 37L (I am 47yo and 185lbs with 25yrs of experience) = super stoked.


I've had some good boards along the way but nothing that feels like what you get in Dark Arts. The boards are really light but are really solid. Old technology feels sluggish after a little while but these boards keep that spring session after session. I got a custom 5'3" JT Dad Bod.

The Dark Arts Mission

Dark Arts collaborates with notable surfboard shapers from around the world. Set on continuing to revolutionize how surfboards are crafted, our offerings are among the lightest and strongest models available, and excel in speed and durability.

Our commitment to producing high-performance surfboards comes with the opportunity to reimagine their life expectancy. We believe that the board you ride today should be the board you ride tomorrow.  


Carbon Fiber is fast reacting and creates spring, unlike traditional fiber-glass cloth. The result of this natural rebound is speed.


Hand crafted, vacuum bagged, carbon fiber cloth, over 2lb EPS stringer-less foam, for optimum flex, weight and durability. Dark Arts continues to redefine the limits for how surfboards are shaped and constructed.


We aim to make a surfboard that feels good under your arm.  Our process has created a product that sits in the lighter category of most constructions available on the market. We’re not just focused on writing a new chapter - this is an entirely different book.
