BOARD BUILDERS

WELCOME, SURFBOARD BUILDERS.
 
WHY DID WE CREATE A BOARD BUILDER COMMITTEE? 
 
The Surf Industry Manufacturers Association recognizes that the surfboard is the foundation and core of the industry, but the
surfboard manufacturing industry is fragmented and skeptical about an organization’s ability to support US board builders.
 
In 2016, we banded a core group of trustworthy and reputable individuals committed to build a legitimate initiative to advocate for and add value to US based board builders and their businesses.  Because the SIMA membership is comprised of nearly 30% board builders, we would like to strengthen those committed to being part of SIMA by giving back in the form of support and opportunity. 
 
The goal is to bring board builders together to have a collective voice in the industry, educate consumers on surfboard production, and work with board builders to create and develop business opportunities that will increase profit margins for all SIMA board builder members. 
 
It starts and ends with the Surfboard. Strengthen the core and the rest of the industry will prosper. 
 
 
THE MISSION STATEMENT:

The SIMA Board Builder Committee’s mission is to support the US-Based Industry by providing opportunities, education, and added values in order to preserve its advancement and integrity. 

 
THE ENDSTATE:
Create an alliance of board builders by growing and strengthening the three key components found in our mission statement: 
 
Opportunities 
 
Education 
 
Added Value
