The Al Merrick board was made with the intent to donate the board to one of the Wounded Warrior associations for auction.

Lead builder for the Wounded Warrior project is master builder Larry Fuller. Larry's commitment to perfection of craft and vision is unsurpassed.

Al Merrick is recognized as the worlds most accomplished shaper. There have been more World Championship Titles won riding Al Merrick boards than any other board made. Al is said to be the original brains behind Channel Island Surfboards founded in 1969. In 2006 Channel Islands Surfboards was sold to Burton Industries. Al served on the Burton board of directors for their first five years. In 2011 he made the decision to stop shaping foam boards and return to traditional wood building.
