I grew up in the small town of Seal Beach, CA. Growing up we either took our bikes to Gumgrove Park or our boards to the beach. Every time we walked down to the water we would pass this little surf shop, Harbour Surfboards. My first surfboard was a Harbour, my dad bought it at a garage sale from a friend down the street. This shop is part of the fabric of the town, which is why it was such an honor to interview Rich Harbour for our project.

After 35 years of buying countless shirts, hat, and surfboards, I never realized the impact Rich Harbour had beyond our Main Street. For all of you with a Harbour sticker on your car or a Seal Beach Hoodie on your back, here is part 1 of our interview with Rich.

Interview was conducted my Markus Davids. It cracked me up because of his German accent it when he says Rich, it sounds more like Rick. We teased him relentlessly.

You can see more of Rich in our movie BoardRoom – Legends of Surfboard Shaping. You can get your copy in the shop or at www.boardroomfilms.com
