Walden Surfboards


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.

5. Titles:
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!
