Caleb Wilborn grew up in Southern California and at the young age of fifteen embarked on a lifelong passion of shaping surfboards with friend Chris Schmid. They soon founded the label Modern Classics. Caleb was making boards that were captivating the interests of the local surf community. By the age of twenty one Caleb had the attention of the surfing world as he was featured in Surfer Magazine’s Collectors Edition as one of “The World’s Most Intriguing Surfers”. Caleb was noted as “The Roots” a one-stop surfboard creation, far from the mass produced surfboard revolution. One-of-a-kind surfboards created by Caleb, from start to finish, were in high demand.
Then, Till Now…
Since then Caleb has been sharing his surfboard designs with old and new friends alike. He began volunteering his time for Surfers Healing, a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of children with autism and their families by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing, as well as compete on the World Tandem Surfing Tour where he was ranked #3 in 2006 and #4 in 2007. Caleb has been displayed in Teen People and Surfers Path for both his unique surfboard craftsmanship and his commitment for volunteering with surfers healing.
What’s Next?
Caleb has since created Surfboards by Caleb where he constantly makes headway in both surfboard design and aesthetic creativity. He shapes everything imaginable from rootsy single fin short-boards, eggs, thrusters, bonzers, fishes to big wave guns, tandem boards, SUP boards and everything in-between. Caleb has made many new friends from all over the world suitably growing his brand. Look for a fresh new brand from Caleb to come, focusing on limited edition surfboards. Whether in the water or in the shaping room, it’s clear, Caleb’s love for surfing and surf lifestyle is contagious.
