The Surfrider Koa Wood Watch -Gold

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.

  • Hawaiian "curly" grained Koa Face (hand finished in our shop) 
  • 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 standard buckle.

The Surfrider Koa Wood Watch -Silver

Carissa, Abbey & Sawyer (Phoenix, US)
Uniquely Designed!

From my research, Koa wood is said to represent strength and courage, & the word Koa means warrior. The use of Koa wood in the Surfrider Koa Wood Watch brings in that masculine touch that is just as unique as the wearer! I purchased this watch for my husband as a “just because” gift. He does so much for myself and our furry four legged kids! A simple gesture of appreciation! In addition, I purchased a replacement watch band of a different color & material so that he could change it up every now and again. I can confidently say, Pono Woodworks is an outstanding choice for gift purchases, or frankly, something for yourself!

Love this!

We got engaged in Hawaii and I knew I wanted to get my fiancé something special from there for our wedding day! This watch is wonderful and so beautifully designed! I can’t wait to give it to him on our wedding day!
