Joe Quigg is the man behind many of the design innovations of the modern surfboard. As Joe has said, if I can draw it, I can build it. In 1990, Joe created this sketch to memorialize some of his many innovative board designs, including the Daralyn Board,” which he originally made for a girl in Malibu in 1947. But the Daralyn Board soon became a sensation -- it was lighter, narrower, and shorter than other surfboards -- and once the best surfers in Malibu tried it, they all wanted one because of its outstanding maneuverability. The Daralyn is just one of Joe’s designs that were taken up by modern surfboard shapers and built into the DNA of modern surfing. As Joe notes in his sketch, These improved combinations have lasted in the surf shops for these past 43 years.

A few years back, Joe gave this sketch to his friend (and our Art Director), Dale Hope, to use as the basis for a print design. We’re grateful for the opportunity to honor Joe and his contribution to surfing with this Aloha shirt. Joe’s genius as a surfboard and watercraft designer has allowed millions of people to share his passion for riding waves and increased our care and respect for the ocean.

    Artist: Joe Quigg

    Joe Quigg is one of the most influential designers of the modern surfboard. Millions of surfboards today owe their shape directly to designs Joe already had innovated by 1948, when he was still in his early twenties. Joe designed some of the first big wave guns, modern pintails, and the nose rider. The design of his Daralyn Board” was a revolution in surfboard maneuverability.

    Although Joe’s genius as a designer is most widely known through his surfboard designs, he also is credited with inventing or improving the design of many other types of watercraft. Over the years, Joe has designed surfboards, paddleboards, outrigger canoes, and some of the world’s fastest catamarans. He has been called the Michelangelo of ocean razing crafts.

    Joe was born in Los Angeles in 1925 and spent his time as a young man surfing in Santa Monica. After serving in the Navy during World War II, he opened a surf shop in Santa Monica. In 1953, he moved to Hawaii to open a surf shop and pursue his passion for designing surfboards in the birthplace of surfing. Joe still lives on Oahu today, having spent a lifetime of spreading his love of surfing and the ocean to millions of people around the world.
