R&D Sessions


We’ve been wanting to showcase our custom surfboard development and creative process for sometime now. To really give our readership a good idea of the effort that goes into each and everyone custom surfboard, we went to the drawing board. After a few burritos and a few cold cervezas we had a good idea of what we wanted to do. This 3 part mini-series is the result of creative efforts. Part 1 would follow Jason Bennett into the shaping room to watch him hone his craft. Part 2 would explore the detail our Collective artists go to while creating their unique surfboard art. Part 3 hands the board off to Cheyne Magnusson to surf right here in Oceanside. We hope you enjoy part 1, R&D.
