Haast Board Co was founded by Nick Haast in 2019, a Kiwi who has traveled the world and is now settled in Austin, Texas.

Despite coming from a family of carpenters, the woodworking gene had passed him, preferring to spend all his time at the beach. That was until arriving in Texas. where Nick acquired what every kiwi boy dreams of, his own shed! The woodworking bug bit slowly, it arose, like most things, from a challenge. “You can’t build that”, “I bet I could” and before you know it, it had bitten.

It wasn’t long before these two passions combined to produce Haast Boards. Hand-crafted wooden surfboards, wake surfboards, and longboards as well as other custom creations.
