Peter Schroff is back shaping surfboards.
Newport Beach surfers from the ‘80s remember Schroff Surfboards for their cutting edge designs that put them at the front of the short-board revolution. At just 14 years old, he shaped his first board on his kitchen table (bet his parents appreciated that) and ultimately perfected the modern twin fin.
Schroff boards were at the epicenter of ultra high performance surfing known at Newport’s famed “Echo Beach” era. The surfboard designer then went on to pursue his first love, art, and launched many successful brand campaigns for surf industry giants such as Quiksilver, Gotcha and Ocean Pacific.
