Ryan Lovelace is a freelance surf craft builder from Santa Barbara California who I was fortunate enough to meet and shoot while he was here in New Jersey shaping surfboards for Glide Surf Co. over at Charles Mencel’s surfboard factory. Ryan is an all around great guy who takes his craft seriously, but can still joke with the best of em. His creativity and innovation in modern surf craft is surely something to be admired and this short gives some insight to his life, opinions and craft.
