Black Atlantic Surfboards


Over the course of years of working in the Erie Surfboards camp, Adam Ribakoff decided to create and work on a label of his own. Taking the values of Erie Surfboards, which has always been about the customer receiving a high quality custom surfboard crafted for you as opposed to fitting your surfing to a mass produced board; Black Atlantic Surfboards was created and is growing with the same product line such as shortboards and even wakesurf boards.


Beyond this, getting a surfboard should not be an experience in which the stuffy shaper who knows more than you dictates what you should ride nor should you feel that you are being sized up by the pimply faced surf shop employee. Getting a board is an experience that should be fun. Maybe you want to just catch a lot of waves and cruise…It is all good!

Maybe you are a secret crazy cat lady and want to show the world your love of your cats or you are crazy about pizza! Adam will get you going.


There are a lot of big things in the works and Adam would love to trade off some feedback to create a perfect board for you.
