Soft Surfboards, Inc. (SSI) was founded in 2000 by Scott McClain, a lifelong waterman, surfer, kenpo, jui-jitsu black belt, mercury outboard powered "champ" division tunnel boat pilot, skateboarder, water & snow skier as a family owned company. Original Liquid Shredder Soft Surfboards were developed in 1999 for the owner’s family to use. Scott wanted a great quality and high performing surfboard that was softer and safer than traditional fiberglass surfboards. He partnered with a Peruvian surfer who was making body boards. They combined unique, patented Peruvian technology with high performance surfboard shapes to develop the first Liquid Shredders. Mr. McClain took his first prototypes to the beach and people bought them right off his van. Needless to say, he built tens of thousands more. Since then SSI has grown into a family owned international surfing hard goods supplier providing the best surf products on the surface of the earth.
