I was having a lot of trouble learning how to surf. Especially at Bay Street because we would always go after work/school and it was just these close outs right into the sand. I was getting so frustrated with myself, one time I came home and cut my hair off. It was getting that bad, like crazy lady bad. Ian decided to make me my own special board. The K-fish. He would observe my crappy surfing and think up possible solutions for my problems. I would always bail on a steep wave, because I would always pearl... this was the biggest problem. So he gave the K-fish a suuuuuuper buoyant nose, this thing couldn't pearl even if I tried. He worked for so long on the design of the board and then finally, the execution of it was just perfect. First day I took it out, it was a glassy morning, and I caught every wave I went for.
