Farina Surfboards by David Farina hand shaped in St. Augustine, Florida. David began shaping boards in his parent's garage in 1987. Eventually in 1989, he was fortunate enough to meet Mike Whisnant the 3x east coast shaping champion and his mentor. David has worked under various labels over the years from Alternative Surfboards, Zion Surf Company and currently run the custom board building division of Shredseason.com. David's been lucky enough to learn from craftsmen such as Pat Madden and John Lucas and the education has not stopped there. With over 4000 boards under his belt he's formulated a teaching method that allows people to properly create their own board in a professional environment without all the frustrations that comes with trying something for the first time.
