Our Storyboard Project makes it into The Surfer's Path...last week to grab a copy!

Through last year we pulled together a project with friend and phtographer Mat Arney called The Storyboard. What began life as a few photos and an idea soon became the seedlings for a full exhibition. We documented the story of one of our surfboards, from the timber being harvested, milled, machined and finally constructed into a board with a few little twists along the way.

We have exhibited the board and its 12 accompanying framed photos at a couple of places down here in Cornwall. Firstly the Tubestation at Polzeath at the end of last year and currently it sits at The Scarlet Hotel in Mawgan Porth.

Mat, being the talent that he is, wrote a lovely story to compliment the photographs. Putting the two together, we have had some handmade books created by our friends down the road at Monkey Puzzle (£25 from our website) and following this, we have been lucky enough that The Surfer's Path picked it up as a feature article in their current issue (88).

The magazine is only on sale for one more week, so if you want to get your mits on a copy you'd better move fast!......failing that, here is the whole 6 page article....you can just about read it if you make the images full screen.

The Cover...we didn't quite make it that far! Maybe next time...
