I'm proud to work with Morin Surfboards on a second hat. This time we decided to feature Josiah's Planer. Some surfboards, including ALL Morin surfboards, are still completely crafted by hand and the Planer is the shapers "paintbrush" - used to sculpt the clunky foam blank into a sleek surf craft.
This specific first gen Hitachi Clark Foam model is lovingly named "Eva Jane" - Eva Jane was Josiah's grandma who before she passed gifted him a little money to help start his shaping career. This specific planer has a storied pedigree, it had been gifted to Alan Gibbons by the Merricks, who used it for years before passing it on to Josiah, who's treasured it since.
