Because I cant help myself! Many passions, desires, and skills have led me to this. I am a woodworker, boatbuilder, and addicted surfer. Somehow I possess an old school, handmade ethic, that calls me to make the tool first, then use it to build with the most challenging craftsmanship I can. I have had a curiosity and passion for the design of watercraft since I was a kid. I am frustrated with the short life of polyester surfboards. I crave a surfboard with the stylish personality of a wooden boat. I am an advocate for producing a long-lived product with locally sourced and low impact materials. It's hard to put it simply, but in the end I strive to make surfcraft that are not only seaworthy tools, but objects worthy of hanging on your wall.
