To those who don’t pay much attention to the details this could’ve been the same thing as seen before. But for those who know, there’s a lot to be said about commitment, aspirations, confidence and fulfillment on the part of the 19 year old Benji Brand’s efforts to score one of the most epic POV tube videos the world has ever seen.
Taking a nod at Koa Smith’s vehicle for success, Benji opted for the exact same board. Granted, Benji wanted his board to be light green, he chose to ride his 2×4 swallow tail CFT LEGACY construction 5’8″ x 18.5″ x 2.3″ cork/bamboo with future quad set up through that Namibia tubefest with conviction.
Wanna follow in the same footsteps as both Koa and Benji?

If you’ve ever been curious as to how a sustainable surfboard can be built then this is the perfect opportunity to see first hand!
