In 2015, and after years of improvement, Renaud creates Panther Surfboards. Each board is designed, shaped and glassed in Panther Workshop in Biarritz. Panther Surfboards is all about quality and craftsmanship. It is, above, a family business, with Renaud shaping and Juliette on the brand development.
Panther Surfboards makes high-end surfboards out of Biarritz, France. The brand was founded by Renaud Pons in 2015, after many years of apprenticeship and refining his craft in France and overseas.
Panther Surfboards made the conscious decision to make everything under one roof in our Biarritz workshop, so that we can focus on the quality and craftsmanship of work. Each surfboard is designed and hand-shaped by Renaud by himself. It will then be glassed and sanded, either by him or by one of our enthusiastic collaborators that he trained. Panther Surfboards is a family business. While Renaud makes the boards, his wife Juliette keeps the shop, sells the boards, and gets people talking about Panther.
