Bill Stewart, better known as “Kentucky’s Greatest Surfer”, was born in Bowling Green KY in 1951. By age 2, his family had relocated to South Florida. It wasn’t until the summer of 1964 at age of 12, that he caught the surfing bug. With the success of the Hydro Hull, Stewart Surfboards grew exponentially and Bill opened a larger shop in his favorite surf town of San Clemente. The shop has been at that same location for 28 + years. Bill has himself shaped over 40,000 boards in his career, and Stewart Surfboards has produced over 100,000 boards since the start of the company.
