Paulownia wood in Europe

Christian Cajar is a man focused on Paulownia and all there is to know about it.

" I've studdied Surf Science and Technology and continuing with a Bachelor in Environmental Resource Management at the moment. All my research projects are focusing on Paulownia and
I've just planted some trees today. My first one was concerning the invasiveness of Paulownia in Europe. I'm aiming for the full circle and we're nearly there. "

" I've been supplying Paulownia for Europe for the past 3 years and what started as a fun project is a one year old registered

We stock paulownia timber in the UK and in Germany and send it more or less worldwide."

 " I basically import Paulownia wood and sell it mostly to surfers. My luv for alaias was inspired by Tom Wegener and I'm really into those wooden sleds. So usually people order wood and get all their questions about the building process answered by me."

" This summer I hosted my first alaia shaping course on one of the German islands called Borkum and ever since I get the latest news of the stoked kids via facebook... really cool that the kids enjoy their playground now rather than drinkin beer."

So if you are in the Northern Hemisphere and have a need for Paulownia, Christian is your go to man.

Shane Herring - InnerViews

Shane Herring - InnerViews from on Vimeo.
We stumbled upon Shane doing ding repair in Bylesy's used surfboard shop outside Byron Bay. After defeating Kelly Slater at the Coke Classic at Narrabeen in 1992, Shane Herring was proclaimed the greatest Australian surfer since Michael Peterson. But cover shots, a six-figure salary and endless parties eventually undid the focus and determination of this rising star. In a post Andy Irons world, Shane's story serves as a cautionary tale for up-and-coming surfers regarding the dangerous effects fame and money can have on fragile young egos. Over a cigarette and bottle of wine, Shane shares some of his struggles and life lessons in this episode of Korduroy's InnerViews.

Ellis x Deus | Bikes x Boards by Matt Chojnacki

I felt a little uneasy when Deus poked their head into the surf industry a few years back...
It felt like it was about the money and branding, but what about the boards they were making?
Were they just retro rip offs to capitalise on a baby boomer market? But with Ellis Ericson & Thomas Bexon tapping into their Bali range of boards,i think it is just what they need: core surfers who can shape and surf.I am in no way associated to the company, but surprisingly to some people who think im a surf cynic, i do enjoy their enthusiasm and can understand their inspiration.
Check them out at Deus Bali.
