American Shaper Josh Hall to Travel to Europe to Break Into European Surf Market

SAN DIEGO, CA (September 22, 2009)—Josh Hall Surfboards opens to the European surf market with new high quality, 100% handcrafted boutique surfboards this fall. San Diego native Josh Hall will travel to France, Portugal and Spain and establish relationships with European surf shops in October 2009. Hall will take Europe by storm shaping custom boards for new customers and collaborating with Europe's top surf shops to welcome his superior custom shaped surfboards overseas.

“It’s been a dream of mine to shape in Spain and I can’t wait to get out there,” says Hall. “I think that my boards and shaping style will fit well into the growing niche of surfers who want boutique boards from California.”

Josh Hall will shape his handcrafted boards in Hossegor, France beginning October 25 before traveling on to Portugal in November. In hopes to showcase his custom boards, Josh Hall will spend over a month in Europe shaping, surfing and meeting new clientele. Hall has established his American audience and has worked directly with the legendary Skip Frye and collaborated with Andy Davis, Tyler Warren, Thomas Campbell, and Richard Kenvin.
