Steve Seebold

Steve has been shaping for G&S for the past 17 years without missing a beat. He’s a seasoned craftsman who is probably our best kept secret. Steve started surfing in 1959, shaping in 1965 and surfed and shaped for G&S from 1970 – 1975 before moving on to start his own line of surfboards.

Steve is versatile and can shape anything, and re-create virtually any model made since the 60’s long or short, retro or modern. Seebold has a mind-blowing shapers library of original templates and specs. Born and raised in San Diego , California , Steve is an incredible surfer who started shaping in the 60’s and is well traveled and known just as well on the East Coast as well as the West. Steve will be transforming retro G&S shapes by modernizing and updating for the present lineup.

Love those Keel Fish Sticks.  Acquired this from Bobby Digital in the OC way back on a Keel Bulk Purchase.   Just check out those Balsa Wood Keel Glassed-On Fins. All original, early 70’s Fish Glider. Been tempted to take her for a fish tale. Just waiting on the special day to cast her in the line-up.  (o) 7.5
