Pukas surfboards were first made in the 1970s in garages, farmhouses or old sawmills. In that moment, the idea was to create top of the line surfboards for the European market. The OLATU factory was the result of the experience acquired from the first professional shapers and glassers coming from overseas.We are convinced that quality is not a mere goal to achieve, but a continuous project which requires one to be constantly aware of the evolution of the industry. This is why we focus our efforts on a mixture of 3 basic strategic variables: shapers, materials, and human capital.
