Bootstrapping it. In today’s episode we analyze the process of starting from scratch in the surf business. The first part of the show is with Maurice Agnello of Edit Surfboards and Used Surf. Maurice explains how he parlayed his humble beginnings delivering blanks Phil Edwards into a unique, industry-leading retail surf brand. In the second half of the show Wayne Okamoto of OakFoils discusses his journey from backyard shaping, to maxillofacial reconstruction, to exotic auto importing, and high-tech, hands-on shaping. Today we bring you the genesis stories of two fascinating, humble, low-key board builders who invested in themselves, learned along the way, and have become experts in their field. Enjoy!
