“A simple yet striking perspective on surfboard shaping. Dylan Longbottom is an experienced craftsman. He has been cutting his own planks since 1995. Andy Irons and Shane Dorian have ridden Dylan Surfboards. Years may pass, and trends may change, but the passion for shaping is alive and intact. A beautiful short film by Jimmy Kyle.”
“Dylan talks about the art of shaping surfboards, but also about his love for his work. The images are excellent. The passion for his work detected at. More of that work, pure art.”
