Welcome back to Creators & Innovators, where we seek to distill the character traits, motivations, and the daily rituals of creatives in hopes of developing a blueprint for how to disrupt norms and innovate in one’s own space. Today we bring you a conversation with surfboard shaper Christine Brailsford Caro. Christine shares how her early experiences as an artist and her desire to repurpose materials positioned her to help innovate a burgeoning surfboard design that could alter the way waves are ridden. We hope you enjoy the show.
Here’s one of Christine’s Paipo boards that she discussed . . .
And wood carvings . . .
And illustrations . . .
And much discussed Edge boards . . .
One of Christine’s mentors, Marc Andreini
And Cher Pendarvis
