Stijn Mulder (right) and his brother are part of a growing community of Dutch surfers who appreciate the heritage and craft of surfboard-building that is deeply rooted in the history of the California surf culture. Here they are enjoying a few waves on a winter day in The Netherlands.
Congratulations to Matt Calvani, Bing's Master Shaper for winning the Florida Shape Off at Surf Expo. The end goal was to replicate an iconic Dick Catri fish using a balsa blank as the canvas. Matt described the 4 hour project as a tiring but satisfying experience. Especially with taking the win. Congrats Matt!
