I was born and raised in Orange County, California where I have always had a passion for the ocean and surfing.  I'm married with a wife and three kids who you've probably seen sneak into my content.  We enjoy traveling and spending time at the beach together.  

I shaped my first surfboard in 2010 and am self-taught.  Over the years, I've learned how to shape, glass and repair surfboards.  I started out in a greenhouse tent inside my garage and have graduated to a shipping container in my backyard. 

I love surfing, working with my hands and making videos.  Bendheim Boards is my creative outlet
to fuel these passions.  This is not my full-time job, just a side hobby.  I've only shaped around 25 boards and my goal isn't to make and sell a high volume of surfboards but rather to continue this hobby that I love and share the process.  The boards I sell help fund my costs so if you'd like to order one, please email me. 

I still have much to learn and am in no means an expert in this industry.  I'm just showing the process that works for me and hope others can enjoy watching the journey.  Thanks for sharing the stoke!
