Personal (2017) / WIP

Whether its to protect from rocky beaches or the cold water, neoprene booties are an important part of the Northern Californian surfer's arsenal. Frustrated at not being able to find a pair on the market that worked well for me, I decided to take a stab at making my own. The project is still a work in progress - updates to come.
