Michael Walter aka Uncle Mike has shaped for over 30 years. It all started in his back yard on two old saw horses. With plenty of recognition from his friends, family and other professionals in the industry he became a hot commodity in Southern California. 21-13 Surfboards is a re-brand of UM surfboards (aka Uncle Mike). They take a “direct drive” approach to shaping that involves the surfer and shaper to have a very open line of communication and interaction while shaping a new board. 21-13 strives to bring common minded shapers together for the purpose to spread their grass-root values. They make it a priority to get back to the roots, community and soul of the surf industry.
