about-present-and-futureFAMILY [fam-uh-lee, fam-lee] – noun: Parents and their children, considered as a group, whether dwelling together or not.

A group of people who are generally not blood relations but who share common attitudes, interests, or goals.

Growing up, my mom and dad were awesome. We weren’t a ‘perfect’ family, but because of them, my childhood was an absolute adventure, and my dad was like a big kid. I am the way I am with my kids because of him. My wife and kids are the most important people in my life. At Dewey Weber, our employees and our customers are our extended family. This may sound strange, but we believe on some level we are all connected, and that if you treat people like family, you will be linked on a much higher level than just an employee or just a customer. In part, it is this belief that keeps us zigging when others are zagging. This was the essence of Dewey the man, and it is the foundation of the business that carries his name….Shea Weber, President

WEBER EXPERIENCE
Stay Close to the Soul© isn’t just a saying for us, it is the core of what Dewey Weber is all about. We believe that the ‘Weber Experience’ is more than just a high quality surfboard. It is our focus to make sure all our customers get the best service possible. We will always take the time to ask the necessary questions to maximize the chance of getting you on the right board. On the off chance you’re not satisfied with the performance of your board, come back to see us within 2 weeks and we’ll get you on something else. It is our job to supply our customers with the knowledge necessary to make the right choice because it is our belief that you deserve no less.

QUALITY
From concept to reality, a surfboard built by Dewey Weber is something you can count on. Each shape and material is tested and taken to the limits by members of the Dewey Weber Competition Team. It’s their job to make sure that you get the best board possible. It’s our job to constantly evaluate and fine tune designs and make sure that you receive the finest board possible. Not just in quality, but also in performance. Dewey Weber isn’t just a longboard company, we are a surfboard company….Always have been. That is why we currently make 18 different standard shapes from traditional longboards to performance shortboards. We have also worked diligently with the different foam and resin options so that we can guarantee any custom board you order from us, be it PU/polyester or EPS/epoxy. If you can dream it, we can build it. We make surfboards for you, and no matter what, you can trust Dewey Weber to give you a surfboard that is the best quality you can find.

CUSTOM
When Clark Foam closed, many thought it meant the end of the custom surfboard. Fast forward 8 years, and the custom surfboard has never had more relevance or value. It was inevitable that there would be competition from overseas manufacturers, but everything has a way of working itself out. Imported boards make the custom surfboard more valuable. Being able to work with your shaper is something that will never lose its value. The ability to customize any aspect of your new board (stringers, color, fiberglass, fins, etc.) is something that I believe was taken for granted for too many years. Remember, not all surfboards are created equal and neither are all surfers. It is naïve for us to think that we can mass produce a product and expect it to work for everyone. At Dewey Weber, we don’t follow industry standards…We set our own. We have very definite ideas on how we develop and produce our products. We have a responsibility to not only our consumers, but to our heritage. Enjoy 2013 everyone, and as always, Stay Close to the Soul.
