Wood Surfboard Supply (WSS) was founded in 2009 by Brad Tucker and Jack Young. Both Brad and Jack already had
successful businesses in the wood surfboard field and formed a partnership to take it to the next level. As owner of
www.hollowbalsa.com, Brad was designing surfboards and building them on the CNC machine in his custom cabinet shop. He
developed building techniques that make it possible for just about anybody to build a wood surfboard that not only looks great but
it actually surfs great too!
Jack had authored a book and several articles on wood surfboard construction and Brad contacted him about writing the
instructions for his kits. When Jack saw the innovative building methods Brad had devised - and the quality of the finished boards
- he jumped at the chance to write the manual. After discussing plans, ideas, and goals Jack and Brad founded Wood Surfboard
Supply and incorporated it in early 2009. The idea was "If we are going to do this we're going to do it right".
WSS is a family operation. Brads wife Ashley runs the office and Jacks wife Marcia keeps the finances in order. Then there is
super surfer Cache Tucker who tests all the designs and keeps the two "old dudes" in touch with the youth segment. Cache is
also an accomplished builder who is has a knack for getting wood surfboards to be lighter, faster, and more maneuverable.
