This week I talked with one of the best kept secrets in Hawaii.

Jimmy Freese of AKUShaper has a dominate presence in the Surfing industry in the world! He and his CAD shaping machines produce about 40% of the surfboards worldwide. Based in Kailua but producing surfboards around the globe he is clearly one of the best kept secrets in Hawaii. A quiet and very modest guy, Jimmy has a very exciting and impressive story to tell.

Please enjoy but listen carefully. He is a soft-spoken and very modest kind of guy.
