Darkhorse Surfboards is a concept company based out of Oxnard, California. The boards are made out of 100% recycled materials such as plastic, wool, newspaper, and driftwood. One of the promises from Darkhorse Surfboards is 26% of of board sales will go to donating surfboards to countries in poverty. The number "26" comes from the fact 260 million tons of plastic the world produces each year, about 10 percent ends up in the Ocean.
Darkhorse contracts local shapers out of Oxnard, California and other towns in California to craft boards.

Four of the surfboard styles offered by Darkhorse Surfboards.
"El Bandito" features a distinctive retro outline, with modern bottom contours and rail shape (single to double concave with ‘V’ in the tail), with the twin fin setup is the perfect board to steal some waves.
"Hi Ho Silver" is as high performance as we go, so not the best choice for beginners, but if you are looking to elevate your surfing up another level this board will get you there.
"Speedy Gonzales" is a similar in concept to boards like the Lost Bottom Feeder or the JS Pier Pony, the Speedy Gonzales takes the concept of super wide high-volume boards back a little further towards typical shortboard performance.
A best seller for the loggers, this longboard bridges the gap between the more performance oriented longboards offered by the general quiver. Low entry rocker for trimming and enough tail rocker to have a little performance.
