“The voice of the sea is seductive; never ceasing, whispering, clamouring, inviting the soul to wander for a spell in abysses of contemplation. The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace.”
― Kate Chopin

Santa Barbara, CA based shaper Ryan Lovelace recently traveled to Asbury Park, New Jersey to shape nearly 50 surfboards for Glide Surf Co. when a solid swell hit the Garden State. Needless to say, Ryan, along with Glide Surf Co. owner, Phil Browne, and a few locals heard the voice of the sea calling them to take advantage of the fun surf.

Check out the short edit below by Christor Lukasiewicz and stay tuned for an upcoming full feature and interview with Mr. Lovelace.
