The Custom World.

Keith by Bjoern


we build your wet dream

A custom board is the paramount choice for a rider who needs a product tailored to their uncompromised needs. The KT Custom World is the holy grail of surf boards. We are not only committed but inherently bound to building, riding and selling boards where it's all at, in Hawaii. All KT production boards are based on prototypes built right here in Haiku on Maui. Naturally such dedication translates into the ultimate quality of boards we manufacture.

Our heritage goes back as far as 1994 and our hunger for new shapes won´t stop tomorrow, let alone today.

You get to choose between three constructions and three rockers, all based on latest high density EPS, Arctic or Varial foam builds with a choice of epoxy or polyester lamination and wood, high density foam or FLEX-X stringers, guaranteed to deliver ultimate lightness to strength ratios. No limits are set on your choice of graphics. There are many ways to order your dream board. The most convenient is to simply fill out your Custom Wishlist online. The one we recommend is to drop by the shop and hang out with me in the shaping room while we talk about building your latest stick.

Please indicate if you would like an artwork or graphic and whether it will be on the deck and bottom or deck only.

Exact prices depend on the complexity of the artwork. Please note that paint and artworks are not refundable. Although our team thrives to match our customers' expectations, including but not limited to color, graphic, size, layout, the final work remains completely to our painters and artists interpretation.

We welcome you to come to Maui and pick up your custom board in person at our flagship store. An additional HI sales tax of 4.16% applies for local pickup. Alternatively we can ship your custom board worldwide. An important part of KT is to provide you with the best shipping price in the shortest delivery time. We review each order individually, factoring in the destination, weight and size of the shipment. Exact shipping charges for all deliveries will be confirmed during the process of ordering your board. For cheaper rates we recommend airport to airport shipments. This means that you'll have to pick up the board at an airport close to you and take care of customs clearance and possible import duties. Airport to door deliveries are also available but price is approximately 40% to 50% higher. If we ship outside the state of Hawaii there will be no sales tax added.


We can ship to your home or office address or to the closest airport near you. Please select.

Please reference the chart belowPrices

Bare board prices in dollars per size range without accessories. The custom board price does not include fins but we can offer you MFC products at wholesale price if you purchase a custom board from us.

A $500 deposit is due upon placing the order and the remaining balance is due when the board is finished before shipping will occur. The payment can be done by credit card, bank wire or check.
