"My first introduction to building surfboards was in my garage of Newport Beach, California back in 2016. During a random Craigslist search, I came across 3 partially-shaped blanks located in LA. Not before long, I was attempting to shape and glass these boards with very little experience or knowledge about board building. It was a learning experience but also a blessing. I am 100% self taught and learning more about the craft every time I step into my shaping and glassing bays. Fast forward to present day and I have been making boards on the side ever since."
