Tia Blanco in “A Short Escape” – a Surf Film by Justin Jung with Music by Catherine Clark

 
Although the vast majority of us ride surfboards shaped by someone else–hopefully your local shaper whenever possible–it’s still fun to get yourself covered in foam by making an attempt at shaping your own surfboard at least once in your surfing life. If you can’t get time in your own shaper’s bay, a perfect alternative is to head to Shaper Studios where they have all the tools necessary to make your dream board a reality. In this video by the talented Justin Jung, Tia scores some time away from the competitive scene and enjoys a relaxing session at home on a self-shaped longboard, all backed by a wonderful track by Catherine Clark.

Film Description
“After a long season of travels and shortboard competitions, it was nice to unwind at home and have some fun on my self shaped longboard. I will never forget days like these. Huge thanks to Justin Jung for putting this edit together. Also, thank you to Catherine Clark for the amazing song.” – Tia Blanco
