As we are fast approaching International Surfing Day on June 20th, team rider Jen Smith, who happens to be one of the most down to earth surfers and skateboarders around, mentioned she was getting ready to shape a surfboard and let’s just say, we were nothing short of speechless after seeing what she came up with…
When Jen and photographer Drew Martin, of Drew Martin Photography teamed up, they captured what surfing is all about; It’s those creative moments shared both in and out of the water and this is where it all starts!
In Jen’s own words, “Surfing is one of my greatest passions and I’ve been riding waves for about 19 years (well over half of my life). recently I picked up a planer ad started shaping boards. It’s an amazing challenge and a new way of exploring ad expressing my love for the ocean. It’s all about finding the board you want to make within the blank you are starting with. For this project, I decide to make a board for international go surfing day. What better way to celebrate go surfing day than to make a new board to slide across a wave on.”
We hope you all enjoy watching this video of Jen shaping a one-of-a-kind surfboard and inspires you to get a little creative (in or out of the water) on International Surfing Day.
