Phil Goodrich is a super talented surfer who follows his own path.  He is also a very talented artist.  We had a chance to ask him a few questions….

Do you remember your first surfboard?

1st. surfboard; 1980. Dad had a friend at N.A.S.A. that surfed, and the two of them thought I should start. We drove to Sebastian Inlet Surf Shop and bought a 5’1″ twin fin. Dad glassed over the twin boxes and glassed in a giant single fin. weird ass board, but it worked.
