About The Walker Project
Mike Walker began shaping surfboards in a 9'x9' garage in Northern Baja (Mexico), while finishing his last
two years of high school in home study, during which time he would crank out two to three days of school
work a day when it was flat so that he could surf all day when the waves picked up.
All that water time meant he was going through a lot of boards, so he started shaping his own. Learning by
trial and error through every part of the process until after several boards his shapes began to work as well
as the boards that he had purchased up in San Diego. Friends quickly started ordering their boards and word
got out about Mike's shapes. By the time he finished his last month of high school, Mike already had a
loyal crew of people asking for his custom shapes.
In 2004 The Walker project begins producing Walker Wake Surfboards and quickly gains a reputation as a
leading producer of high performance wake surf boards.
