Welcome and Aloha

Wave Weapons is one of the rarest of all surf shops due to Lou Dog’s one on one with the surfers.

To locate a surf shop these days where a customer can speak to the actual shaper and expert in surfboard manufaction is very rare to say the least! From handshaped custom paddleboards (SUP) to 3 foot fiberglass boogie or bodyboards.

Lou Dog’s consistancy with 15 different longboard designs, 12 models of funshapes or speedeggs to retro fish and high performance shortboards and tow-in boards. Lou Dog does it all! With over 35,000 custom shapes under his belt, that puts him in a league of his own. Also, his knowledge of vintage surfboard restorations, of rare time pieces and repairs on everything fiberglass!

What’s so remarkable about Lou Dog’s Wave Weapons is his ding repair or broken board repairs! 24 hour turn around time! The Dog can’t understand why surfers have to wait 2 to 3 months to get their ding repaired. Lou has a 7 to 10 day turnaround time for custom made surfboards!

Lou Dog has been in the surfboard production since 1977. He shaped his first 3 boards for a customer in which the late Gary Baldwin air brushed Yosemite Sam on each board. Lou found his calling.

By 1987, the Dog was saved. He gave his life to the Lord and uses his surf shop to minister to all surfers. Whether they are three-star generals, police and firemen to Seal Team 6 surfers or just the young 8 year old that has nothing. Lou Dog can always find a used board to bless that young surfer with!

Lou is a father to 8 beautiful kids to another 8 beautiful he helped raise. To be a single father to all those kids and run a shop like Wave Weapon International can only mean he has the inside scoop for life! Trust in God

“My goal is to work with surfers who are serious about getting the board that will take them to the next level. I offer highest quality design and craftsmanship, my personal attention, innovative technology, integrity, a fair price and quick turnaround.”

For all shapers it starts with blank foam and stringers – much like a blank canvas to an artist. But it’s what the shaper does with those materials that makes all the difference. In the hands of a Master Shaper & Craftsman like with decades of experience behind him and the countless number of surfed waves that have passed beneath him, the finished product is sure to please even the most intense wave rider.

Remember – the best surfers in the world are the ones having the most fun! So it’s your board…talk to the shaper.
