“There’s a certain feeling that wood has when you are surfing… the speed is so quick; it’s difficult but it’s fast and it just seems like you are more in touch with the energy of the ocean.”   Tom Wegener

Tom Wegener has long been considered a master shaper, but it is in the genre of finless craft that he has really earned his rep. In this clip he strives to articulate why wood is so special to work with and ride. Between nose rides Tommy champions the toxin free aspect of wooden boards and encourages surfers to get in the garage and go D.I.Y with a plank and a planer.
