McDermott Shapes is a small business, owned and operated by brothers, Andy and Ryan McDermott. Since 2004 their work has been dedicated to creating surfboards and stand up paddle-boards that are custom designed for both riders and their waves. 4 years ago they decided to open Blackpoint Surf shop in Scarborough, Maine’s custom surfboard shop.
As of recent the boys are continuing to grow their retail space in Scarborough, but are really focusing on greener manufacturing possibilities within the surfboard industry. After receiving a Seed Grant in 2013, Andy and Ryan have both worked closely with Maine Technology Institute (MTI), testing resin systems in the hopes of finding a manufacturing process that is environmentally conscious without sacrificing quality and board performance.
"We are passionate craftsmen and take pride in our work. We build boards for the same reason we surf, because it is what we love to do. All of our work comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, if any of our boards, repairs , or restorations fail due to poor construction we will replace it or fix it at no cost."
