Michael Murphy / Murph’s Surf

There I was sitting on this busted up board on a ocean off of Thailand, In the gulf of Siam sipping on a luke warm questionable beverage enjoying some sick sunset dropping in front of me then it hit me, I want to do this for the rest of my life and I wanted to share the experience with other people. One very long story short here we are growing and learning each season. Everyone I have ever known has always called me Murph. I grew up in south beach Miami and every afternoon no matter what I found myself at the beach watching the sun set and paddling around in the ocean. That was just my life and passion. In 2015 I secured the LLC, trademark and started working on inventory. I mean working summer after summer and one board turned into four and now, here we are with over 50 boards and a hand full of kayaks and a system to deliver them to people all around to enjoy. While we have a long ways to go I’m pleased to see how far we have come. For me its more than a small business I started its truly a way of life and my greatest passion.  What am I doing now? I’m not paddling a old busted up board on the other side of the earth now. I’m actually working my butt off to bring my passion closer to other people and I’m slowly building and creating boards that I love to paddle, I’m working with some of the best builders I can find and we’re working everyday to improve our company and our boards.
