It's funny that when folks arrive at the shop for a visit or a class in board building, we never know where it's all going to end up. Board and kit customers also seem many times to become part of a weird little extended family all centered around the simple act of building and surfing wood.
Last summer, Jeff Martin came down from British Columbia on the west coast of Canada to take a board building class. He left with a story that he and Nick put together for Surfer's Path Magazine (reprinted here in our Board Stories Section). Recently, he was back again - this time building a 5'4" Waka fish and getting an interview for SBC Surf's Magazine.
We also had a great visit from the guys at The Daily Stoke who were full of questions and were... well, stoked. They posted an article about their visit. Thanks, guys.
Fact is, we owe thanks to these guys and to hundreds of others who have just plain done us the honor of caring about what we do. But beyond that, some friends - both old and new - have helped us in all sorts of ways that continue to make a difference and are greatly appreciated. Whether its lending boards or digs when we're on the road, or helping us with blown engines or good advice, thanks to all of you.
