Meet Tom Carroll

We welcome to the shop legendary waterman Tom Carroll. For anyone who group up interested in Pro Surfing Aussie Tom Carrol was one of the most successful and respected surfers on the tour. We welcome Tom to our San Rafael to talk board design.

Tom’s passion for the water is palpable and you can feel and see that passion in his new line of Stand Up Paddleboards. With decades of experience designing wave riding platforms Tom has collaborated with Blane Chambers on an innovative new line of boards that blends their decades of experience in to things that just work better

We will open the session with a meet and greet and then dive right in to Design and Performance. Here is the schedule

Meet a legend and learn something at the same time. A Saturday evening well spent.

“My simple motive is to become more water friendly. Water loves to move in a spiral manner. Just think of when we empty the sink of water, down it spirals into the waste or how a waves are formed in rhythmic chains and break over themselves as the hit shallow water. Large flat areas where water wants to grip to, and ripple over, are unfriendly to our approach” - Tom Carroll
