Healthy Rituals | James Otter / Otter Surfboards

Inspired by the natural environment, local boardsmith, craftsman and environmentalist, James Otter, has been pioneering the creation of handcrafted wooden surfboards since 2008. Channelling his two passions for surfing and craftsmanship, James makes a range of sustainable wooden surfboards, paddleboards, bellyboards and handplanes using locally grown timber from regenerative, sustainable woodlands with his hands.

  

Filing, sanding, smoothing, sawing. The tranquil rhythm of finding flow in the art of crafting objects using nature’s raw materials; and the feeling of connection from using your hands to create.

 

 

  

 

 

 

“For my mind, I make a conscious effort to read and take time to slow down regularly, ensuring I have a chance to put energy back into myself.” - James Otter
