8/15/09 - Trueline vs. 'Falselines'. I have recently been contacted by many surfers and boardshops about so called trueline surfboards. There have been some companies shaping boards under the same name recently. Please know that I have been shaping under the Trueline name in San Diego/Southern California for over 25 years and stand by my products. However, I assume no responsibility for inferior quality products that were made elsewhere and compromise and tarnish the Trueline name. Look for the logos on this website (or the J/N logo) for boards shaped John Neve.

There is something special about having a custom board shaped for you. It's designed with your input, for your skills and surfing goals, and with your desired breaks in mind.
