gordon and smith surfboards

larry gordon and floyd smith were the co-founders of gordon and smith surfboards in 1961. gordon and smith surfboards, commonly referred to as g&s surfboards, was based out of san diego, california and had a large local following.

it wasn't long before the gordon and smith label was well known and surfed throughout the surfing world. in large part, gordon and smith surfboards gained popularity among surfers because of the major talent and influential surfers on the gordon and smith surfboards team.

team members like skip frye, hawaii's barry kanaiaupuni, mike hynson, of endless summer fame, dale dobson and butch van artsdalen - the original "mr. pipeline" and many others, contributed to g&s' popularity.

throughout the 60s, 70s and even well into the 80s, gordon and smith surfboards continued to be a sucessful surfboard, surf accessories and surf clothing company.

gordon and smith have been credited with creating the surf t-shirt in the early 60s, and building some of the most progressive boards of the time.
