Chuck Barfoot started creating skateboards in the late 60s and early 70s to mirror the feeling of surfing. His first deck was built from two water skis he purchased at a second hand store and was equipped with wood wheels. Today, Barfoot is based in Ventura, California, and produces custom snowboards and skate decks. Going back to his roots, Chuck is heavily influenced by the old school surfing and integrates those characteristics into his designs. Barfoot offers 16 different surf style decks with traditional shapes that are split in to three categories; longboard, performance, and short board. Chuck continues to skate, surf, and snowboard.
