I shaped the first TL prototype in Spring 2008 in the Angulos' shaping room on the North Shore of Maui. I was taught how to build the board to windsurf specs, and I tested it in Reunion Island at the '08 World Waveski tour. That trip commenced the never ending journey to design and build high performance surf craft. I see each board not only as a finished product but as a piece of living art, itself inspiring new growth.
