There is so much emphasis on importing from other parts of the world and yet we have some fantastic businesses here in the UK and especially the West Country.”

This is an opportunity to talk to the shapers and expand your knowledge of a surfboard design. There will also be two hand shaped surfboards and an original framed piece of artwork by Jessica Cooper to be won.”
