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 professional surfer and shaper Derrick Disney. Derrick shares how an early shift in mindset altered the course of his career, his lifestyle, and lead him on the path to build experimental boards that would find new lines on waves. We hope you enjoy the show.
