On a recent trip back home I had the privilege of watching and learning from one of the best glassers in Hawaii!

I also shaped a few boards. Mahalo Derek for letting me use your shaping room!

Island Fin Design

Steve at Island Fin Design has been making fins for 30 years on the North Shore of Oahu. Now these hand made fins are available in Taiwan through Ref Surfboards and select dealers!


Back at home in Hawaii.

I visited Eric Arakawa at his factory on the North Shore. I worked for Eric in the late 80’s to early 90’s and got to watch him shape and learn about board design and production.
