About Surf Boards by Dewey Weber
Dewey designed his first garment line in the 1960′s. His surf team of more than 30 athletes, affectionately known as the “Redcoats” hit the beach in 1964 resplendent in full Dewey Weber regalia, making a fashion statement still in evidence in the 1998 Dewey Weber Surf Wear line. In business since 1960, the company retains its leadership position in the surf industry. Since Dewey’s death in 1993, the Weber family has dedicated themselves to the continuance of Dewey’s commitment to excellence in all their product lines. And perhaps, most importantly they stay “close to the soul” of the surfing lifestyle by just going surfing. Son Shea Weber now leads the company. For more information, visit DeweyWeber.com.
