THE ANATOMY OF A SURFBOARD
In 2013 Ben Sutherland, the co-owner and creative director of Glued, went on an adventure to New Zealand. He went primarily to have a holiday, but also with the vague idea to make a documentary. On his travels he met some fascinating people, and whilst surfing he decided to combine two of his great loves, surfing and film making. Shape is the result. Over the course of a month Ben interviewed two ‘shapers’ Roger Hall and Mike Grobelny, who both make surfboards in different ways, one using traditional wood, and the other using modern materials and techniques. Both of them create unique and beautiful surfboards. Shape is a documentary which encapsulates what it is to be a surfer and the history that is behind one of the oldest water sports in the world.
