Creative Kin: A different kind of surf trip

What do a surfboard shaper, a glasser, a woodworker, an artist, an agriculturalist, a PhD chemistry student and a professional surfer have in common? A lot, as it turns out.

Last month, Vissla invited a diverse cross section of their Creators & Innovators to share ideas and a few waves in Northern California. Danny Hess, Cliff Kapono, Evan Marks, Jay Nelson, Derrick Disney, Jeff McCallum and Alex “Superwolf” Villalobos stayed in a house equipped with a shaping bay in line of sight of fun surf. But unlike many surf trips, the waves themselves weren’t the most stimulating part.

“Everybody here is from such a different background, and they’re bringing something different to the table,” says Hess, the San Francisco-based shaper of wooden surfcraft. “The search for surf is almost the funnest part because you’re just having interesting conversations and learning new perspectives.”
