South Africa’s third wave seems to be about the longest wave I’ve ever ridden in my life. I wish it would just close out, or flatten out. I think I speak for all of us when I say that I’ll be stoked to see the back of Covid.
The social isolation has lent itself, however, to closing the workshop doors and getting on with building wooden surfboards. Not that closing the Big Green Doors would keep out Covid, but its been a wet and cold winter in Cape Town so there is that.
There’s a diverse range of wood used in these boards: American Walnut, Western Red Cedar, Japanese Cedar and Obeche.
These boards are heading to homes in South Africa, Germany, Netherlands and Bermuda.
