Wood surfboards

Episode 45: Randy Bogardus

Randy Bogardus -- 50 years of wave riding, shaping wooden surf craft

In Episode 45 we speak with Randy Bogardus, a man of the ocean who leverages his 50 years of wave riding in his design and development of wooden surf boards and paddle boards. Randy takes us through his youth on the rugged Oregon coast to years of surfing and sailing the world in pursuit of his passion for waves. We hear of Randy’s first wooden craft project as a youth building a sailboat with his family to building and sailing his own boat and ultimately building wooden surfboards and paddle board kits for his Clearwood Paddleboards company. We hear Randy’s great perspective on riding different wave craft to stay healthy and in the water for over 50 years — something that can be inspirational to us all.

Thanks for sharing Randy’s ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of Randy and his wooden boards on his Instagram page and website.
