Show Notes

Join us in this special episode as we travel to Costa Mesa, Ca to meet up with Lance Collins @wavetoolssurfboards_lance, a legendary self-taught surfboard shaper whose passion for shaping transcends time. In the late 60s and early 70s, Lance discovered his calling - crafting surfboards. What started as a means to earn a living soon became a lifelong love affair with the art of shaping.

As a skilled surfer himself, Lance's trajectory took a turn after a fateful boat racing accident altered the course of his surfing career forever. Yet, guided by faith, Lance embarked on a spiritual journey, leading him to christen his brand "Wave Tools of the Spirit." However, a divine intervention prompted him to shed the "Spirit" from his brand, thus birthing "Wave Tools" as we know it today.

In this episode, Lance reflects on his son Richie's remarkable professional surfing career, navigating the highs and lows of the world tour circuit. Through Lance's eyes, we gain insight into the profound connection between shaping, surfing, and spirituality.

Catch Lance at his shop, where he can be found Monday through Saturday from 12 PM to 4 PM, continuing to shape timeless classics that embody the essence of the ocean. Don't miss your chance to visit him, engage in captivating conversations, and perhaps even order a custom-made board that encapsulates the spirit of the waves.
