About Us

Jensen Rugboards is a family owned business located in southern CA. This is our story.

Steve Jensen laid carpet for over 20 years and surfed a little on the side. One morning after surfing he came up with a great idea. What would a carpet runner, in the shape of a surfboard, look like? He decided to give it a go. He cut up a bunch of carpet, glued it all together and the first ever rugboard was made.

That was in 1997 and we have been making our rugboards by hand in southern CA ever since. We have expanded a little since then to include some machine washable products, but most of our rugs are still made by Steve himself.

If you don’t see your dream rugboard on this site, please contact us here and we will happily make one up for you.

Happy surfing!
