We’re launching the new year with a discussion with surfboard shaper Donald Brink. Donald is renowned for his hand-crafted asymmetrical surfboard designs. In this episode, Donald shares about his youth growing up in South Africa, why he believes nearly all board designs can be improved upon with an asymmetrical change, and the importance of cultivating a fascination for the ocean.

There has been a few worth-viewing videos of surfers riding asymmetrical boards. While they are not Donald’s boards (they’re both shaped by Ryan Burch), we still recommend you take a gander.
