Often labelled as “The Father of the Modern Longboard,” Steve Walden is a highly recognised figure across the surfing industry, growing up in Southern California and spending the best part of 40 years shaping custom surf boards for himself and his friends, Waldens depth of experience and style has now been passed on through the Walden brand. Walden has become one of the largest producers of long boards in the US surf market and looking back at its roots, the company has quickly brought back what had become a “dead relic” brand and turned it into one of the most popular surf board brands today.
