Kyle Johnson: JuiceBox
Originally from Los Angeles, Ca. I moved to Santa Cruz after graduating from UCSD in 2009 on a mission to become a professional surfboard shaper. Inspired by the true craftsmen of the industry, my goal has been to embrace and learn the craft from start to finish and constantly strive for higher quality both in design and aesthetic. I have been fortunate enough to study alongside master board builders and learn the fundamental techniques in shaping, glassing, sanding, resin work and design. Building surfboards is simply an integration of all that I like to do: surfing every day in this wave rich region influences the types of boards I build and the creative freedoms of the glassing process are constantly developing in response to my artistic sensibilities.
All JuiceBox Surfboards are designed on an individual basis and built from start to finish at Almar Surf Works in Santa Cruz, Ca.
