I’m really sorry about that. These shelves are so gnarly that they’ve overwhelmed my ability to think creatively. As a result, my mind has unfortunately reverted to a state where it can only produce content filled with cheesy surfing cliches.
I grew up in Michigan: we do lakes, not oceans. So needless to say, I am not a surfer. Like many other coast-deficient Americans, I’m left to believe that surfers say silly things like “cowabunga” and “totally tubular.”

You don’t need to be a surfer to appreciate the workmanship in these shelves. This isn’t some mass-produced Chinese import made with particleboard and laminate. Dana surfboard shelves are made in the style of a surfboard by someone actually who produces real surfboards.¬†

But it’s more than just the workmanship – it’s the authenticity. Unlike my surfer vocabulary, these boards are completely authentic, not just in their construction, but also in their spirit. If there’s anything that I understand about surfing, it’s that it’s a lifestyle as much as it is an activity.

Dana shelves are produced a mile away from the beach by a man who lives for surfing. It’s not just a business to Dana, it’s a passion. You see this passion in the beautiful detailing, the hand-selection of the wood, and the individual care put into each and every shelf.

So dude, hang 10…of these wonderful shelves, that is.
