At Rhythm, we’re all about championing like-minded individuals in their creative fields, so naturally, we saw you to be a great fit for this collaboration. Can you tell us more about your own ethos and approach to creating your product?
I’d say my ethos would be: Make it well, make it to last and in small numbers. Surfing brings a lot of joy to people but I think we’re all aware that they’re not great for the people who build them or the environment. The process of building boards and fins can be quite wasteful. I personally try to create things that bring a lot of value to a customer and would make them want to hold onto and care for the product. I’d prefer my customers to be adding to an ongoing collection, rather than frequently replacing boards and fins.
One last question: what is your ideal board-fin set up for a pumping day back home?
I’m not sure, that’s a hard one haha. I’d like to say something alternative as I’m all for riding anything and everything. I really enjoy the different feelings you can get from a variety of surfboards. However, I’ve been working on some shortboard and thruster set ups lately that are influenced by other Mid-North Coast board builders. These have me pretty excited at the moment, so right now, probably one of those if it’s pumping. Those days are few and far between and I definitely want to be making the most of it!
