Grain Surfboards began in the basement of a home minutes from the waves in York Beach, Maine. Mike LaVecchia combined his love of board sports with a passion for traditional wooden boat-building techniques to create works of art for riding waves. Brad Anderson joined as co-owner shortly after and, with the help of some friends, Grain has grown into a full-fledged surfboard manufacturer known for innovative techniques, classic designs and ground-breaking products.

We’ll always remember our roots. We’re motivated by the simple act of riding waves on modern shapes hand-built using classic techniques and local, sustainable wood. The beauty of Grain Surfboards lies in the blend of local softwoods, the artful patterns naturally produced by the growth of the wood itself, and the love of harnessing the power of nature, even for just a fleeting moment.
