The enigmatic champion of mind over waves. Bob White and his unique approach to the shortboard invasion shook up the surfing world. Bob started in a garage, then made boards for friends, got into a small shop, eventually producing about sixty boards a week. His ads captured the imagination of surfers from one end of the East Coast to the other.
Stringerless boards number coded, light and radically designed were Bob White's forte.
Bob in the shaping room
Bob's business card
" This is a crude, strange little business. You're dealing with free thinking artistic people - Surfers are fascinating, but they don't like large capitalistic ventures."
[ Bob White 1968 ]
