There are few things as exciting (and challenging at the same time) as making your own surfboard. Understanding the design and visualising how your craft will go. And then, of course, surfing it for the first time.

After our “First Love” video, Adrien Toyon decided to try and shape his first board with the help of the local legend Peta. Once all the process was finished, he took the board back to his home in Reunion Island. Coming back to the waves that you surf since you were a child is very special. This time, with the first shape, it was even more.
