:: The Uhuru Movement ::


At Uhuru, we strive to create products that reflect your lifestyle and personality or as we like to say, "Vehicles for the expression of self".  To compliment our solid and cutting edge designs, we want your surfboard to be personal and highlight your interests and creativity.  Every Uhuru product is created as a unique, one of a kind project.  We achieve this through our perfectionist's approach toward shaping and custom airbrush, artwork and design.  


We take our custom approach and artistic passion one step further by offering one of a kind board art with our Artistic Board Design (ABD) Series.  The ABD Series is like nothing you have ever seen and is sure to be the centerpiece of your home or business.   


We are a family run business.  Artists who truly enjoy what we do.  We measure our success by the amount of happiness our products bring to you.  If you are stoked on UHURU then let us know


Thanks for stopping by our site!  Check us out for your next dream board.

:: Latest News ::


Good question.  Simply put, Uhuru means 'Freedom' and is pronounced (you-HOO-roo).  

Uhuru is a word that has it's origins in Africa and is part of the Swahili language. Uhuru has been used as the battle cry of many freedom movements and revolutions. To us, Uhuru is about expression, creativity, exploration.  The freedom to be.


Take a closer look at our logo:


The "U" represents the human figure, arms raised as a symbol freedom.  


We hope you find your freedom in your dreams, passions and pursuits.
