My dad, Ken Pier, shapes surfboards. It’s been many years since he’s made one, and he decided to get back to it, starting with one for himself. This is a whole other kind of art, and one I really respect. Shaping a surfboard by hand is, in my opinion, like trying to freehand draw a perfect circle.
He’s been surfing most of his life, and shaped surfboards since the late 60s. He created his own brand, “Arrow.”
