A Video Ode to the Custom Surfboard

Aug 21, 2012
Outside Magazine

The Sound of Dust is a roughly three-minute tribute to surfboard shaper Tim Stamps. There's no glory or praise uttered by other shapers or surfers. The testament to Stamps' greatness comes from witnessing his constant attention to detail. Hidden Notice has created a video profile of a man that loves to hit the shop every day and grind, cut, shave, and layer a board until it perfectly fits the needs of a given individual. In that way, the filmmakers have shaped Stamps into a bit of an artist.

Of course, Stamps also has to be a bit of a salesman. Check out Stamps Surfboards for pictures of his creations and blog updates on who is riding them.
