Tom’s choice of t-shirt on the middle day of his “build-your-own” workshop week was wonderfully ironic. He hadn’t thought twice when pulling it on in the morning and it took a while for it’s significance to be noted. It quickly became the basis for some wonderful conversations throughout the day centring around the topics of environmental considerations in surfboard production and the stagnation in material developments, alternate construction methods and of course the enormous impact of Clarke Foam’s sudden closure back in 2005.
