Watch Christian Hosoi shape and surf a hammerhead surfboard

Our friends at UNIV recently installed a shaping bay in the back room of their shop and invited our friend Christian Hosoi to shape a surfboard based on his timeless, signature skateboard shape, The Hammerhead. Watch as Holmes talks about his eponymous design while shaping the boards and then watch the boards get shredded by Dylan Graves and Benji Weatherley.

From UNIV:
The UNIV x Hosoi Hammerhead surfboard collaboration was shaped by Christian Hosoi and UNIV's own James Addonizio in the UNIV Work Shop. The Hammerhead surfboard is a scaled-up five foot five inch replica of Christian's famous skateboard design from the 1980s til today. Skate meets surf. Test piloted by Benji Weatherley and Dylan Graves in fun California springtime conditions. A few sizes of Hammerhead surfboards on the way from UNIV and Hosoi very soon.
