Gary Larson- Hobie Surfboards Master Shaper The Longboardarian Podcast

    • Wilderness

Surfing is very rich in history. It's a fact that the Hobie Surfboards label is a crucial and important part of that history, especially in the context of surfboard building and surf culture.
Our guest for this episode was given the honor and responsibility to carry on Hobie Surfboards legacy as their numero 1 shaper (head shaper) of the brand. As of the day of this interview, alongside Gary, Michael Arenal and in special projects Adam Davenport also joins the diminutive lineup of shapers of Hobie Surfboards.
This interview was my first time meeting Mr. Larson. My impression of him after this interview was of a man that is intelligent, humble, very knowledgeable, respectful and well spoken, to name a few descriptive adjectives.
We geek-out on many topics and I tried my best to squeeze some longboard design wisdom out of his brain. I am confident all of you longboard nerds will appreciate our conversation.

See ya in da wata!
