This September, staff videographer Sean Santiago hopped on the Solid Surf tour bus for a journey up the Eastern Seaboard. Each year, Dan O’Hara the owner/ shaper of Solid Surf, stocks up the bus with several new shapes and models and hit the road to educate surfers on his latest board technology. This year highlighting the eco-conscious bio-flex board designs. The trip gives these West Coast dwellers some time to reconnect with friends, family and share some uncrowded waves with the fellow East Coast shredder.
