Greg Martz founded The Waterman’s Guild in 1983. In the past 35 years it’s become renowned as one of the world’s leading surfboard glass shops; glassing boards for everyone from Dale Velzy, to Lightning Bolt, to Channel Islands and Rusty. In today’s episode Greg explains how one bad fall on a skimboard led him to board building, he reveals the secret for how to properly laminate a surfboard, discusses the value of harsh criticism, and why friends are important in good times and through loss. Lots to learn from Greg. I hope you enjoy.
