Ingenuity Meets Inspiration

Tiger Woods is one of the greatest golfers of all time, but he doesn't make any of his own equipment. The same is true of most athletes - the enthusiasts generally use specialized but mass produced gear off the shelf of a store. My neighbor Kevin is an exception. A dedicated surfer, he builds his boards from start to finish. Be it foam, carbon fiber, expoxy, long board, short board, egg, or fish... He brings an artist's eye to every process, with color work that a Gucci or Missoni would give a closer look. The pictures show one of his boards where he keeps it in his kitchen, and the other, taking one of his creations out for a ride.
