Beautiful surfboards are as much of an art form as a painting, so we at High Tide feel that vintage boards and coastal art go hand-in-hand.
We only carry good-to-excellent condition collectible names like Gordon & Smith, Town & Country, Dewey Weber, Mark Richards, Lightning Bolt, Local Motion, Hansen, Canyon by Rusty, MTB, Blue Hawaii, Hobie and the list goes on. Shipping available within the continental USA. Available boards can change daily!
We look for certain years, brand names, condition, shapers and other factors that make one vintage surfboard more collectible than another. Lifelong surfer Mike Wiles (brother of High Tide owner Aimée) also travels the Eastern Seaboard seeking out desirable boards for our collection. Many of our boards are on consignment as well.
We have the top 3 sites on Google for vintage, collector's item longboards and shortboards from Hawaii, California & Florida.
