If you surf the Pacific Northwest, you’re hardy. You fear not rain, cold nor shark. Infact, harsh conditions don’t keep you out, they draw you in. We worked with FRESTcoast to document what sets PNW surf culture apart.

The Process

Like shaping a board, surfing the Northwest requires patience, persistence and passion. FRESTcoast board shaper, surfer and all-around rad dude, David Hendrickson, gave us his take on what it takes to hit waves in the Upper Left.

One of a Kind

PNW surf style is shaped by daring, creativity and resilience. These same values shape FRESTcoast’s boards, which are cut to match customers' unique riding styles and the types of waves they charge.
