Robert August is an American surfer and surfboard shaper, raised in Seal Beach, California.  He is most famous as one of the subjects of Bruce Brown’s 1966 surf documentary The Endless Summer, along with his friend Mike Hynson. The film follows the two around the world pursuing their hobby during the California offseason, meeting other surfers and discussing surf culture.  August picked up surfing in the 1950s, when the sport’s popularity had just begun to grow.  His enthusiasm and his involvement in The Endless Summer influenced the growth of the sport over the following decades. His surfboards are sold under the Robert August Surfboards brand and are produced by Surftech, a company that manufactures lightweight epoxy surfboards.

WHAT I RIDE

It makes sense to ride a board that maximizes your fun regardless of the conditions. “What I Ride” utilizes a 60/40 rail configuration which, in combination with a nifty tear drop concave conveniently placed under the 18″ wide nose, greatly enhances your style of nose riding.
