Making Surfboards | Nice Content | Tatered


[MUSIC] I’ve been doing it since about 1981,
I think. I started in my garage like
I guess a lot of people do. Started doing ding repair
on your surfboards and then I’d strip the board down,
reshaped it, then we had to glass it. That thing turned out horrible so we decided next time we’d
actually buy a blank. [MUSIC] I went through high school, building, had
my little brand, marketing that, making a few hundred surf boards in the garage at
my mom’s house until we grew out of that. [MUSIC] Think about ’87 I came back here and
partnered up with somebody, and we started a glass
shop building boards. [MUSIC] You go do some job and you’re like dude,
I’m really not into this thing. Well, I’m gonna take the day off,
we’ll pass on this one. If somebody comes in here demanding
something, yelling and screaming, belittling my guys, nah,
I don’t wanna do that, sorry. That’s the good thing
about keeping it small. [MUSIC] It’s a great activity, it’s just a lot
of people start surfing and get the bug, and it goes your whole life. I got guys who are 60, 70 years old, are still constantly chasing that next
wave or that next surf adventure. [MUSIC] It’s like an addiction,
but it’s a positive thing. There’s a lot of worse things out
there we could be doing in life. [MUSIC] I do enjoy getting up everyday and
going to make surfboards, I’m not one of those people like,
it’s Monday morning, I gotta go to work. It’s like it’s Monday morning,
I got things to do, I gotta go. You can go to the beach, afterwards
you go to work and make surfboards. It’s not a bad life,
I’d probably do it again. [MUSIC]>>Wasn’t that nice? Subscribe to Super Deluxe for more. [SOUND]
