Coastal Craft: Where did you get your start and why?
I got my start in the professional industry at a little repair shop in San Diego called joe ropers ding repair and custom fiberglass. Then onto many other factories in the San Diego and Santa Barbara regions.
CC: Where are your board shaped and sold?
My boards are shaped and glassed in Port Angeles Washington in my own personal factory. I also retail stock boards out of the same facility in my showroom/ surf shop storefront.
CC: What’s your go to board to shape and surf in the PNW?
My personal northwest quiver consists of a log, a fish, and a shortboard. Because no day is the same up here.
CC: What draws you to this event?
I enjoy this event for the vibes, and the opportunity to connect with the Oregon surf crowd. I received great exposure from this event.
CC: What do you want visitors to take away from this event?
I hope visitors from the event realize that there’s great boards being built up here. I also hope to inspire people to try different designs and expand their surfboard knowledge and future board selection.
