Presumably inspired by seeing how hard Utah shreds in Point Break, the similarly landlocked trio of Minneapolitans behind iDOL have combined to become "the world's exclusive full-service freshwater surfboard manufacturer". Each board's computer-calculated for properly buoyant foam volume, then wrapped in lightweight fiberglass and laminated with epoxy from Resin Research -- also what's done at an institute of even higher learning.

Freshwater Surfboards Specifically engineered for the buoyancy of saltless H2O (on which saltwater boards won't float well), these puppies are available custom-only, and've been dubbed "Great Lakes" for their obvious utility on their ok-sized waves, or, what happens when the Royals come to Target Field
Wake Surfboards Designed for surfing a boat's wake (without bindings, that is), these things mimic ocean shredding via their pointed tips and multi-fin designs, with the lineup including "The Long", which's the world's only epoxy longboard wakesurfer, impressive, as those dudes often sleep quite late

They're also currently working with kiteboard pros to develop their own line of models, but in the meantime, are taking custom orders, so expect Gary Busey to call them up and demand "gimme two!".
