Paddle Surf Hawaii’s research and development crew is more active than ever! Yesterday, I had the privilege of speaking with Blane Chambers of Paddle Surf Hawaii. If you ever have a chance to meet Blane, it will be an experience to remember. He is bursting with genuine excitement about the growth and development of stand up paddle surfing. Blane is one of the few shapers that is constantly in the shaping room and in the water. According to Blane, the knowledge that comes from shaping a board yourself, then taking it out into the surf to analyze its performance is priceless. From noseriders to big wave guns, PSH is constantly evaluating and re-evaluating their designs.
