Yerxa is a small grassroots surfboard company located in the Old Waialua Sugar Mill in pursuit to craft custom handmade surfboards for surfers of all skill levels around the world.  

I shaped my first surfboard in my parent's garage when I was 17.   Over the years I have had the pleasure of working alongside some of the best shapers and inspiring people I have known.  Jon Pyzel, Eric Arakawa, Jim Richardson, Cino Magallenes, and Jeff Johnston are a few that have had the greatest influence on me.  I have shaped for Third Stone Surfboards, SMAC, Pyzel Surfboards, Eric Arakawa, Shuji Kasuya Surfboards, Boardculture, Town and Country, and Hawaiian Island Creations.

I am excited to announce my partnership with Third Stone Surfboards.  Third Stone is a collective of creative like minded individuals who are striving to preserve the surfing lifestyle and the tradition of building surfboards.

"Always for love, never for money."
