PROJECT AMPHIBIAN

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.
