The Bruce Jones Story
Bruce Jones began shaping in the mid-60s at Hobie Surfboards after having worked for Clark Foam gluing and planing stringers. His early influences and mentors include Ralph Parker, Terry Martin, Gordon "Gordie" Duane & Phil Edwards.
In addition to Hobie, Bruce also worked for prominent California labels such as Gordie Surfboards, Dick Brewer, Plastic Fantastic, Russell and Vardeman (to name a few) before launching his own brand in Sunset Beach, CA in 1973.
Bruce's stylistic choices reflect the modern qualities and influences of his early training: simple curves and forms guided by function, performance & a refined sense of wave-riding.
His most notable designs include the Jackie Baxter Model made in the late 60s for Vardeman Surfboards, his early and mid-70s single fin guns with hand-drawn logos by Jericho Poppler and his original design, the Modern Longboard, first conceived in the late 70s and refined into the 20th & 21st century for use by renowned surfers including the late Rell Sunn.
