Oregon Surfers: We’re A Scrappy Lot

Shwood founder Eric Singer teams up with friends to create a unique wooden surfboard using reclaimed wood found on the Oregon coast.

The construction process was guided by Joe Blecha, a bona fide virtuoso of custom surf and snowboard construction. http://www.blechaboardshop.com

Kahana Kalama, professional surfer turned shop-owner (www.alohasunday.com), was there to test the limits of the handmade board upon its completion.

Based in Portland, Oregon, Shwood creates handcrafted wooden eyewear using fine exotic hardwoods. View the collection at http://www.shwoodshop.com
