When we’ve asked some of our best activists “what girls want?” this is what they delivered.
Whether it’s snowboarding, biking, surfing, street art or skiing, our girls are passionate about what they do and always motivated to travel, discover new terrain, and express themselves in their sports and lifestyle.

Shwood founder Eric Singer teams up with friends to create a unique wooden surfboard. Watch how Singer and company process and shape this functional one-of-a-kind board using reclaimed wood found on the Oregon coast.
The construction process was guided by the expertise of Joe Blecha, a bona fide virtuoso of custom surf and snowboard construction. blechaboardshop.com
Kahana Kalama, professional surfer turned shop-owner (alohasunday.com), was there to test the limits of the handmade board upon its completion.
Based in Portland, Oregon, Shwood creates handcrafted wooden eyewear using fine exotic hardwoods. Shwood’s in-house manufacturing process merges precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship to create a timeless art form. Every step from veneering and precision lens cutting, to shaping and finishing is conducted in our own Portland-based workshop to promise an entirely handcrafted eyewear piece.

This is a design I've been thinking about and finally got together with Wegener Surfboards to shape it. 7'3" and almost dead flat. It feels like it works just as well backside as it does frontside. The asymetrical outline and fin setup are influenced by what Ryan Burch, Richard Kenvin and Carl Ekstrom have done, it allows you equal control with less total fin surface area in the wave making the board super fast and maneuverable. The difference is that there's more fin area on your toe side than in your heelside, where their asyms have more fin total fin area on your heelside. It feels different but but good. It felt good riding it and thinking it was the first one of its kind, that was until I saw a picture Peter Townend posted online, turns out he was riding boards like this back in the day. Oh well, ignorance is bliss. Look forward to playing with the design and riding it in some different surf.
