THE PASSION PROJECT TURNED OBSESSION
Back in 2013 Tim's wife, Jen, wanted a paddleboard, and throughout researching the different options he stumbled across some guys on both coasts building wooden surfboards, and he absolutely fell in love with them. The look, the environmental benefits, and lastly, the fact he could make it his own. He told his wife he was going to built one for her. It’s crazy to think back to that moment, he says, because at that time he didn’t realize that the following years were going to completely transform their lives.
