Talking Story with Marc Andreini
Marc Andreini swung by the shop this afternoon to drop off a custom Vaquero (pictured) and to pick up some BioFoam blanks for a few customs and a couple of stock boards.
Marc is a consummate craftsmen and has a wealth of knowledge regarding surfboards and surf history. We're super stoked that he spent some time at Seahuggers HQ sharing a little bit of that wealth. Our conversation ran the gamut, covering everything from Hull design and the nuance of a Lis fish, to the challenge of riding a 12' Frye Eagle; Greenough's influence on surfing and the nature of flex. I only wish I could have captured it all on video!
It is always a pleasure to be in the company of a master, especially one as humble and full of aloha and stoke as Marc Andreini.
Big mahalo to Marc for the education.
