The Surfrider Koa Wood Watch -Silver

Regular price Sale price$179.00

The Surfrider Koa wood watch was designed to compliment your favorite island style adventures while looking on point at your next board meeting (surfboard preferred of course). The original Hawaiians used boards made of Koa to ride the waves and became the first surfriders. When designing our surf watch, my goal was to create a beautifully simple but robust Koa watch that could keep up through your whole day...whether surfing or just lying in the hammock.

  • Japanese Movement, Stainless body, Mineral Crystal, Silicone Band
  • Water-resistant to 330 feet...hold your breath
  • 2 Year Full NO-HASSLE worries, we've got you covered
  • 42mm diameter and 10.25 thick, 24mm band
  • Free and Fast Shipping and Returns...we make a bunch, send them to our shipping peeps in Florida and they send it out next business day...for the win!
  • Thoughtful Gift, beautifully packaged in a watch travel case for easy just tell the story.

The Surfrider's design incorporates details that bring to mind Hawaii's favorite pastime...and possibly best invention (I might be biased). My intention for the Surfrider was to excel no matter the venue...It looks on point dressed to the 9's or dressed down to your boardies. It can accompany you out to the lineup or into the boardroom (surfboard preferably). The design details draw from the sport of kings...check out the details below.


When surrounded by water, you better develop a love for it. The crown protector's shape represents a building wave crashing around the crown. The hands represent surfboards and the lugs remind me of surfboard fins.


Koa only grows in the Hawaiian islands and we use only the most rare and beautiful "curly" grained Koa. It gives an iradescnese and movement to the wood. We hand finish all the wood in our small shop in Honolulu which ensures the face becomes the crowning jewel.


Sizing...The Surfrider is a 42mm case. This fits most everyone's wrists without looking too big or too small...certainly the most versatile of watch sizes.

No Worries!! We wouldn't leave you hanging. We're way too small to have angry customers. If something's not quite right...we'll make it right on our dime...whether you want to replace or return.


We design our wood watches and hand finish the Koa wood in our small shop in Honolulu.  We've focused on small batch production so we can guarantee the best quality while providing a wood watch that is truly unique and rare.  We use only the most amazing "curly" grained Koa from the Big Island...the most rare, beautiful, and expensive.  We encase our Koa in an equally worthy case using a stainless body, mineral crystal, Japanese movement and oversized buckle.

Koa wood is the premium watches that Pono uses to make an exception variety of timepieces

Nothing like this company that believes in a quality product and doesn't stop there.

Beautiful Watch & More...

This watch is amazing! The only challenge I have though is that I also own the Koa Solid Wood Watch with the square face, so it is always a challenge each morning deciding which one to wear. I have bought two watches, a wallet, and three phone cases. I absolutely love ever item that I have bought from Brett, and trust me the customer service is over the top! I honestly like the watches from Pono more than my crazy expensive black & gold Rolex Submariner. I honestly get more compliments on my watches from Pono as they are super unique. I will be back for more items, as it is all about want and not about need! Thanks for making such amazing products. Every time that I look at my phone case, watch or wallet I smile and think about the beauty of Hawaii and the cherished memories from my time there. If I could give 10 stars I would!
Mahalo Brett!
