In Episode 33 we hear from Collin Boys, a Southern California legend dedicated to the sport of bodysurfing. Collin shares with us his stories of finding his passion for developing the next generation of handboards, a long-time (but not forgotten) tool of bodysurfers world-wide. We hear of Collin's approach to building his company, Hush Handboards, around this relatively fringe ocean sport while enjoying his own passion for bodysurfing. (Note: This is a near and dear topic for myself, having grown up bodysurfing and recently acquiring a Hush Handboard for my own use :).

Thanks for sharing Collin's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of Collin on his Instagram page and Hush Handboards website. There is also some fun stuff on the This Ocean Life Instagram and Facebook pages. We are also on Twitter ranting about anything cool happening in the ocean.
