North Florida has always been flush with talented surfboard shapers. While your Whisnants, your Rozos, your Dunlops, your Whites, etc. are still going strong, it’s encouraging to know that a new crop is carrying the torch, mowing foam in distinctive ways. One such torchbearer, St. Augustine youngster Sean Cusick, shreds on all manner of craft and is dreaming up his own unique creations when he’s in the Oldest City.

Local filmmaker Luke Kothera put together the clip below, which puts Cusick’s idiosyncratic skillset both in the water and out on full display. Read the interview Kothera did with Cusick, here. Click play to see the young man shred.
