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 iconic surfboard shaper (and accomplished jazz pianist) Pat Rawson. Pat talks us through his origin story, from selling papayas to Dick Brewer to building boards for world champs. He details how perseverance and hard work has allowed him to make significant contributions to surfboard design through each decade of the past 50 years. We hope you enjoy the show.
