Happy New Year everyone!!! This years first Craft Feature comes from right here in San Diego! A Young Artist and Shaper that loves sharing the Stoke! Enjoy!
Craft Feature No. 9
San Diego, California
DSDF: Tell me a little bit about yourself? Where you are from and what company/organization are you with?
Hello everybody, I'm Jonathan Foster with Soulfull. My hometown is sunny San Diego, Ca. I've been shaping since I was 13, which isn't that long considering I'm only 15 now, but I plan to be around for quite some time.
Facebook: SoulFull Handplanes
DSDF: What Surf Craft(s) do you make/offer?
Soulfull currently only supplies a constant source of handplanes. But stick around, I am always looking for new paths the branch out into and expand.
DSDF: When and How did you get into Surfing?
I can't even remember when I got into surfing, but when you are always around the water you have to do something, so I'd either be surfing or swimming.
DSDF: What is your favorite form of Stoke (SurfCraft)? Why?
My favorite form of SurfCraft or "stoke" is a hard question, I feel obligated to say handplanes but recently I've been enjoying Paipo and Alaia.
DSDF: Any specials projects or events you'd like to share or start?
I'm pleased to announce that I am currently In the process of shaping my very first alaia, and have plans for another one along with a piapo. Also I'm planning another Southern California ride day, I'll keep everyone posted on social media.
DSDF: Where do you see the Culture heading in the near Future?
Just in the short period of time I have spent deep within the bodysurfing / alternate surf craft community, I've seen it expand and grow from an underground society to now whenever I go out for a surf I'll generally see someone bodysurfing. Im looking forward to many years to come with such a vibrant and diverse community.
Thank You Soulfull for supporting the Stoke and we look forward to many more years of SurfCraft from you! Can't wait for another Ride Day! Happy New Year, and Stay Stoked!!!
