Self Shape Contest

Donald Brink

It's a fun way to look at just how special surfing and the craft can be and puts extra emphasis on the subtle nuances on the magic sleds one gets along this surfing life's path and how special they really are.

serviette or single fin

Donald Brink

Like the thread count in a serviette or the lumen rating of the pendant light of the corner booth. These things are elements of design that cohesively can elevate an experience. Crafting wave sleds is no different. Details, simplicity and a sense of wonder.

Ride 4'10" in Indonesia, high fives and big smiles (Fancy Free)

Donald Brink

Treading water next to the floating craft his eye level assessment was as close up and as magnified as it gets. His words started, yet came out unsure but with careful diction ”Asymmetric, asymmetry it, it’s...wow! How long is is this board? “ I laughed and simply responded its amazing when design lets you enjoy the average days on a 4 foot 10 inch sled.

Time spent with Grant Ellis.

I have so much respect for Grant as a photographer. I had not met him till fairly recently but along side images through the years I began to know his name and respect his perspective on the people waves and moments of the surfing life.   Being a fellow South African it's a common  bond and proud sense of origin. 

Grant stopped by to show me a board he recently shaped in the back yard and it put many shop stock models to shame. We spent some discussing things that mattered and the joys and frustrations of the current surfing platform.  

I'll never forget his perspective and value the passion towards the same causes that I awake to daily and like he and many others, strive to pursue and progress with excellence.  

Grant ever so gracefully shot a few rolls around the shop with some propper cameras and being a fascinated photographer myself  I valued the committed  approach and it seemed special and sincere.
