About Captain Sawdust

Bob Jumper’s love of wood and water began in his early 20’s and has continued for several decades. While living on the Big Island of Hawaii, he enjoyed surfing the Kohala Coast and became a scuba instructor and boat captain. Throughout his adult life, in between and after his scuba/captain experiences, he has been a building contractor, finish carpenter, furniture and cabinet maker, boat carpenter and more. This combination of life experience led him to his current love of creating handcrafted surfboards, stand up paddle boards, paddles and skateboards. There is nothing as pure as riding a hollow wooden board atop nature’s body of water, whether an ocean wave, calm river or lake.

His newest endeavor includes a collaboration with his oldest son, Sylas, creating custom longboard skateboard decks. The Captain fabricates the decks in his woodshop and Sylas, a gifted artist and lifelong longboarder, creates custom designs on each deck. These are one-of-a-kind rides made by the father and son duo with a genetic connection to creativity.

Bob has also handcrafted a cedar strip canoe and kayak used to explore the Cascade Lakes in Central Oregon and on the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon where he lives and makes sawdust.
