Uncle Owl Is A Legend

Owl Chapman has been a legendary surfer/shaper on the North Shore for over 40 years. He still charges big waves, and continues to shape some of the most beautiful and functional surfboards in the world. Uncle Owl is full of wisdom, and listening to his stories in his shaping room is what constantly brings me back to the Third Stone Surfboard Factory in Waialua. Check this video from the early 80's and tell me this guy isn't the man! ALSO, watch my 8'3" Owl in action here:

  1. Wow, great clip. Seems like a really cool guy. I like his thoughts on surfing, giving back to surfing, and that comment at the end about they might have a good lookin' sister is hysterical. Seeing you surf that 8'3" gun this year that Owl shaped was classic.
