Shaping Surfboards with Jamie Horsefield

In his father's shed, overlooking his local surf break, 15-year-old Jamie Horsefield works on another creation. I met the young Warrington surfer a year and a half ago, when he knocked on my door one morning and asked if I wanted to get some waves with him. There's nothing like the cheeky enthusiasm of a grommie to get you amping again.

Since then, we've chased heaps of swells together. Usually, my phone will ping beside my bed with another early morning swell update. School holidays seem to be proving a difficult time for me to get much work done.
