Hello, my name is Chandler Richmond. My company is based out of Morro Bay, California where we build hand crafted surfboards. I started Nautilus in 2017, Originally crafting surfboards from start to finish alone and now I run a factory operation with a talented crew of craftsmen and professionals.
Hanging around in my dad's shop growing up and learning about the art, I started off with ding repairs and worked up to sanding, glassing and eventually shaping. Our factory now manufactures at a large capacity and offers glassing services to established and emerging shapers. With more than 10 years in the industry, we've tailored a standard of quality, style and a principle reflected in our products and practice.
We are a family of surfers and craftsman alike, devoted to the art, surfing, and the community that comes with it. We love what we do and are grateful for all the friends and supporters that help keep our passion alive.
