ROB LINDAUER - OWNER SURF & ADVENTURE, Virginia
1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
Surfing and Standup-paddling are my passions. I believe that the best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun, so I take that approach every time I paddle out
2. Favorite boards?
My 9'0 custom Walden hand-shaped performance SUP, which works great in clean surf from ankle to head high. I have also been riding a 5'10 Mega CD ( we call it the "hush puppy" at Surf & Adventure!) as a single fin and it's a blast.
3. Favorite books or films?
Endless Summer is probably my favorite movie and one of the classic surfing films of all time. Never gets old!
4. Recent Projects:
Running Surf & Adventure Co. is my ongoing project and my life's work. Within the structure of our company, we've been able to partner with a local workforce placement nonprofit organization Eggleston Services to employ people in our community with disabilities. The partnership has been extremely rewarding.
It's been awhile since I've competed, so I've just been enjoying freesurfing and giving Steve feedback to help refine SUPs and alternative shapes. Work keeps me busy, but I still get out there as much as I can!
