Jon Wegener Dynamo Surfboard
More from Wegener Surf
DescriptionThe Dynamo by Jon Wegener is the ultimate short board. It’s bottom contour, fin set ups, and width all combine to generate speed. It’s round template make it very loose. These attributes blend together to create the ability to do the maneuvers you imagine yourself doing. The design is smooth and forgiving, and works well frontside or backside. This board works best in fun conditions, anything from knee high to overhead surf and can be ridden by the intermediate to advanced surfer. It can be set up as a three four, or five fin set up. We recommend a five fin box option to take advantage of all of the different setups. The board reaches it’s full potential when constructed with EPS foam and glassed with epoxy resin but can be ordered in standard polyurethane foam. The EPS foam blank with Super Sap resin option adds lightness and extra buoyancy. Fins are not included and must be purchased separately. Jon suggests the FCS Fusion fins as a best option for fins but can be used with your favorite fin. The Dynamo is hand finished and signed by Jon Wegener, world class designer and shaper. Groundswell Supply surfboards are custom made and are prepaid at time of order. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. Oversize shipping fee applies, see actual cost for your zip code at checkout.
About Wegener SurfJon Wegener grew up, began surfing and shaping in Southern California. He has been shaping since 1987 and has dreamed of doing nothing else except surfing and shaping ever since. After his college years in San Diego, he returned to Hermosa Beach, CA and began to work on his passion full-time.
In addition to starting Wegener Surfboards he has also shaped for a number of other veteran shapers including Hap Jacobs, and Bing Surfboards. In 2010 Jon moved to Encinitas, CA. As a board maker Jon has always tried to find the right board for the right conditions. Jon loves to make and ride a huge variety of surfboards. Depending on the surf conditions he rides anything from a finless wooden alaia, to a “traditional” fiberglass noserider, or a progressive shortboard.
In 2005, Jon’s brother Tom Wegener introduced Jon to the Alaia after a trip he had taken to the Bishop Museum in Hawaii. The two brothers have been making Alaias, and Paipos, and trying to get the word out ever since. Along with the boards they make they have been spreading information about Paulownia wood, a special wood perfect for making surfboards. Since Jon began working with wood, he has not only looked for ways to combine his two passions, he has strived to make his regular surfboards “ASAP” (as sustainable as possible).
Jon is more excited about where the surfing world is going now, than at any other time in his surfing/shaping career. At Wegener Surfboards we are thrilled to be at the forefront of this new path that surfing has taken, and we can’t wait to see what new developments are waiting up ahead.

Not only is Jon an accomplished board builder and shaper but is an outstanding woodworker who brings this unique skill set into the creation of his designs. He also surfs and tests everything he sells as well as gathering input from riders of his boards. Few shapers we know of offer such a diverse collective of water craft...and the best part is that they work amazing! In our recent interview Jon called himself a “surf doctor”, he has the ability to understand what works best for the conditions, riders ability and desired result. We take all this into account when we build a product for you. Just like a skilled physician there are numerous methods and equipment that can be utilized to accomplish the best outcome. Our approach is to create beautiful handmade products that will give you many of the best rides of your life. With Wegener Surf the Stoke is virtually impossible to avoid.
