Experimenting with new designs is what keeps things exciting around the wood shop. I design these one-of-a-kind boards according to materials I may find that day, or according to my latest notions for improving performance. Sometimes I work with artists and designers to come up with new ideas, but I always follow where my heart and hand leads me.
Tilley | Octovo Collaboration
Developed as one of a series of special collaborations for the Octovo travel products brand, Tilley Surfboards worked along side Ammunition Group to design and build a limited collection of boards and custom tailored carrying bags. The series includes five individual board shapes built using my method of combining custom milled wooden skins and components with hand-shaped foam. The collaboration was intended as a creative expression of Octovo’s mission to provide “Beautiful tools for connected travelers.” More here
