Out on the west coast of Ireland, Patagonia Surf Ambassador Tom Doidge-Harrison spends his time chasing waves and honing his craft shaping surfboards. “You don’t need all this stuff,” says Tom as he talks about the jacket he’s shaped five hundred boards in, “you just need one that works properly and try to make it last as long as you can.” Our clothes not only serve us with warmth and protection, they carry our stories — surfboard foam shavings and all. That’s what makes them worth hanging onto, repairing and using as long as possible; a virtue that comes naturally to Tom.

Jokin Etxeberria - Vissla Flow Team from Jungle Juice on Vimeo.
Jokin Etxeberria se suma al "Flow Team" de Vissla a nivel nacional representando a la perfección sus dos grandes slogans:
"Creators & Innovators" - él mismo se fabrica varias de sus propias tablas
"Surf everything & ride anything" - le encanta surfear con todo tipo de tablas y en todo tipo de condiciones, desde medio metro con un longboard hasta olas cañeras con un pincho asimetrico, un twifin playero o un single clásico.
Un completo desconocido para la gran masa pero un surfer de gran talento para todos aquellos que le han visto surfear.

HOT PLASTIC EVOLUTION. from CJ Nelson on Vimeo.
I have been using this as my inspiration reel for a couple years now. When i first got my Australian Slasher made by Ian Chisholm, i looked everywhere for clips of people riding similar designs so i could sort out the origional intent behind this style board. Aside from all the modern footage of Al Knost and Dane Peterson and the obvious others who rip on Involvement style logs, its nice to dig into the history books to see Involvement logging in its heyday with the masters behind the wheel. -cj
