Paul from Canada

I met Paul out in the surf at Raglan NZ last year and was struck by his friendly nature and enthusiasm for surfing. We caught up again earlier this year when Paul was traveling in Oz and happened to be passing through the area. He was keen to check out the factory with the idea in mind of making some boards for himself sometime in the future.

I got these pics via email the other night of Paul's efforts - handmade beauties. Being landlocked in Canada, he's only surfed them behind a boat in the river so far, but he's having fun. He's super keen to get them in the ocean sometime soon.

I reckon thats awesome.
