“Marko was founded in 1961 by Don Peterson and his wife Sally. It became a full family affair in the 80’s when their kids were old enough to work. Ty Peterson, Don’s son and current Marko president started working full time in 1985. In 2014, grandson Coby Peterson, started his Marko career in sales as third generation of the family to work in the family business.
With foam, quality is found within fusion. Having a high fusion rate is the key to making the best surfboard blank. A poorly fused blank can compromise the integrity and strength of the blank and finished board.
We are able to achieve incredible fusion rates through our unique form molding process. Every blank is molded individually in its own mold cavity. This allows for large, evenly spaced, amounts of pressure to be exerted on the blank ensuring maximum fusion between beads.
We strive for high fusion rates in all of our blanks and continue to create new formulas.” – Marko Website
