Jake Moss has a vision.
His vision is surfboards that can offer high performance AND have a much lower environmental footprint.
I like that about him... I like that commitment to creating something better without discounting a major attribute like performance. With Jake sustainability and performance isn't an "either or" question.
What I like even more is that he views this as a journey and he's willing to share and learn at every stage of the trip.
He lent us a board, it's the one he's standing on in the photo to the left. I took it out at Swamis in North County San Diego and had a ball. It was fast down the line and had better flex and memory than many of my boards. I also had a couple of our crew take it out, their comments are to the left.
If you think about those two things, sustainability and surfboard performance, then this podcast is for you.
