Cabianca Surfboards

Cabianca Surfboards by Johnny Cabianca

Johnny Cabianca knows surfboards. For the past 35 years, from São Paolo to Zarautz, Spain via Sunset Beach and Santa Cruz, Cabianca has been mowing foam and studying the art.

Cabianca started shaping surfboards for a talented young kid from his home beach in Maresias, Brazil. It soon turned out that this kid was beyond talented; Gabriel Medina would become a world champion while riding The Medina & the DFK 2.0 by Cabianca surfboards. The rest is history: a legend-making match that brings us to the modern day.
