What else can we say about John Holly but he's a local legend and one of the finest craftsman to come out of San Diego...EVER. Holly has been making boards along side the best in San Diego since working in a stall next to Skip Frye at Gordon and Smith Surfboards in 1969. Not only a fantastic surfer, Hollys boards have been ridden and admired by San Diegos best surfers and fellow shapers.
John Holly, Skip Frye and Mike Hynson
In 2018 Holly was among the first group inducted into the San Diego Surfing Hall Of Fame along with Skip Frye, Mike Hynson, Phil Edwards, Bill Caster and Butch Van Artsdalen just to name a few.
Now in his late 70's, Holly still cranks out batches of boards for us under his "Seagull" brand and we are honored to have his boards in stock (while they last) in our Morena and OB locations.
