GOOD 100: Meet Danny Hess, Borrowing From the Past to Build Surfboards of the Future

May 16, 2013

Not many people can be described as a ‘wood fetishist.’ Then again, not many people are Danny Hess.

Based in San Francisco, Hess uses salvaged wood, natural finishes and organic resins to create environmentally friendly, green surfboards. Crafting surfboards that last and can even be passed down from generation to generation is uncommon in a sport where participants crash often, forcing them to replace broken equipment more than once a year.
