Nectar Surfboards was founded by Gary MacNabb in the garage of his residence in Del Mar, CA. in 1976. By redesigning Long board, Retro Fish, and single fin board shapes into modern, ultra light, highly maneuverable wave craft, MacNabb quickly secured a leadership role among U.S. surfboard manufacturers. After Nectar introduced the Original 3-Fin Thruster to the world in 1980, it became one of the largest and most recognizable brands in the world. While the 3-fin Thruster continues to be the archetype of all modern surfboard design, Gary MacNabb continues to redesign and define everything from High-performance Long boards, Nose riders, Fish, Quads, Hybrids, Fun boards, 5-fins, to SUP’s.
