PACIFIC NORTHWEST SHAPERS – Barracuda Surfboards
BARRACUDA SURFBOARDS has been a Vancouver Island main stay for many years. From the inception of the business it has been in the hands of surfers who have loved what they do and love the sport of surfing. Never pushing to hard and never losing sight of what matters most – your surfboard.
Carl White started the small Vancouver Island Based business in 1999 and handed it down to Will Hazen who now runs the show with a very liberal hand, always asking for input from the community of committed surfers based here on the BC island. Other craftsman and dutiful employees call Barracuda home now, showing up for work before the sun has risen and after it has set, all in the name of getting their daily wave count in….shaping, glassing, sanding, fixing, restoring and having a sh@t load of fun all the time.
HtO adopted the philosophy of only carrying hand shaped boards long ago and because of this we have been carrying Barracuda Surfboards for a very long time. Our relationship with these guys is one we want every surfer to have, to know the guy, to share a beer and shake his hand….surfing has a soul and we want you to help keep it alive.

Recently Sterling, a reporter form CBC stopped by the shop to get the low down on our spearfishing section and inquire about the possible future of the sport in BC waters. Make sure next time you are Downtown Victoria BC, you sop by and have a chat and check out our selection.
