Donald Takayama is a critically acclaimed surfboard designer and shaper and has built surfboards his whole life. Out of necessity he started shaping wood boards from old railway ties near his home in Hawaii. He grew up surfing in the late 40s with the likes of The Duke and the legendary Rabbit Kekai.
He is widely recognised as being one of the most knowledgeable shapers in the world. From humble beginnings, Donald now manufactures his boards for sale across the globe. He has seen surfers and designs come and go over the years and has continually refined and modified his shapes and designs to bring you his largest and most sought-after range in surfing today.
