26 Jun HOW A SURFBOARD CAN REVEAL YOUR PERSONALITY – HAV: CUSTOM HANDMADE SURFBOARDS
HAV is a Barcelona based surf workshop. They believe that every client is special so they make 100% personalized surfboards, analyzing with care the exigencies of every surfer and adapting their necessities to make the best of every surfboard. This year they made for us a special board collection.
An ode to eccentricism. The abolition of the ordinary.
There’s nothing like something unique. When a place, a person, a job, an item of clothing really represents what you have inside, Then you know it’s the real deal…Because no other person has the same. And shaping these unique creations is exactly what the guys at HAV Surfboards do.
A board, a sculpture. Your future, your dreams.
You can shape a lot of things in your life. But you need to some things to do it: love, being true to yourself and style, your unique style.
In HAV’s workshop in Barcelona, the lights turn on.
Juan puts on his mask, gloves and listens: it’s the contour of the boards that start to talk to him. They are speaking about their future owners. How they look, how they feel, how they see the world. Colours, volume, size slowly appear in his mind. It’s the shaper in his natural habitat.
Building up a brand that works on exclusivity and joins functionality with art requires freedom to create. And it’s not easy to be free. Freedom can mean taking risks that many people are not willing to take. But we are not afraid to fail, we are not afraid to be free, we are not afraid to Dream.
