The dedication that surfers in the Pacific Northwest posses is very inspiring. We set out to learn a little bit more about this community, and their approach to surfing. These are people who don't shy away from the harsh conditions of winter; they embrace it. David Hendrickson of FRESTcoast, let us document his board shaping process and gave us some insights as to what it's like to surf here in the "upper left". Surfing in the northwest requires patience, persistence and passion. All of which David brings to his craft.
With performance as the primary focus, FRESTcoast focuses on shaping boards that are designed specific to that rider's style, and the waves they ride.
