    Volvo PR guru pursues his surfing passion on both coasts

    Blind Dog Surf Boards

    Blind Dog Surf Boards

    My buddy Dan Johnston and I have two things in common: our love of Volvos, and our pigheaded determination not to grow old gracefully. Recently Johnston, a long-time member of the Volvo public relations group, moved from company headquarters in New Jersey to North Carolina. Back at the beach, he can pursue his life-long loves: building boards and surfing.

    “I started surfing in California around 1962, grew up in Torrance and Hermosa Beach,” said Johnston. “Life was easy back then. We loaded up our old Ford, would drive to San Diego on Friday night, surf at Cardif or head up to Santa Barbara to surf Hammond’s Reef if SD was flat. No internet in those days, surf hunting was a crap shoot.”

    Johnston lived in Hawaii for short time, during his enlistment in the US Navy.

    “Surfed Sunset Beach with some mainland friends, must have been 10′ out there,” he recalled. “No leashes and nasty swims. “I learned my limit that day.”

    Recently, Johnston and fellow surfing buddy, Tom Allen, started Blind Dog Surf Boards, producing custom hollow wooden surfboards. All of the wood comes from managed sustainable forests in the area or pieces they have harvested. Each hollow wooden board takes about 90 hours to craft.

    To learn more about Blind Dog’s custom surfboards, visit Dan’s blog site.

    2. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass favor.
