About DAY1 Wake

Founded on the principle of seeing each day anew, DAY1 Wake proudly provides a high-quality, hand-built product that allows every rider type to get the most out of their experience.  We confidently stand behind our products and only release those boards in which we’re proud to ride.  As watersports junkies since early childhood, Day1 founders and ambassadors have been behind boats year round in the Pacific Northwest for over 30 years – from our early days, they have always been passionate about understanding and seeking out the best gear possible.  Day1 enjoys each custom order opportunity, gaining an understanding of what you, the rider is seeking, coupled to your ability (current and desired) and your typical riding conditions. Day1 is confident in our ability to design you a top performing board.


Design & Build – Technology Meets Craft

The DAY1 Wake Products leverage both 3D Design Software and our in-house CNC shaping machine as well as hand shaper artisans leveraging years of Ocean and Wake Surf construction experience.  Coupling our boards with industry leading essentials such as Futures Fins and custom EVA traction pads allows us to focus on design and finish – ensuring you will have both optimum performance while staying glued to the board.


Hand Made in America

All DAY1 boards are manufactured entirely in the United States.  Every one of our production boards features EPS/Epoxy Stringerless Construction,  Day1 Traction pads, and Futures Fins.


What does Custom mean?

Simply put – we can work with you to build a truly one-of-a-kind board, from shape, size, fin configuration and graphics, we have the ability to tailor fit a board to your specifications – from beginner groms to full-grown seasoned pros, we’ve built them all.  Not sure exactly what your specifications are?  No problem!  Through a phone conversation or two, we’ll get you dialed in.


How long will it take to get my board?

Depending on what we are building you, this may vary a little, however, we typically turn boards around in 3-4 weeks.  That means from the time you place your order, we strive to ship it out to you in under a month.  We will stay in communication throughout the build process and keep you informed of our progress.


Along the years, we have been fortunate to have met some pretty amazing people and are appreciative of the opportunity to be part of the wake surf community – the lifestyle of loading our friends (new and old) in the boat and sharing sets is cherished.  Boards and Smiles are made daily creating memories and friendships for a lifetime.  We thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about who we are and what we do and look forward to building you your next board!
