“The Sierra foothills seem an unlikely place to find a surf legend. But an ‘Endless Summer’ vibe fills the Rescue workshops of Floyd Smith.”
Four converted sheds built in a El Dorado County hillside pasture – one for foam, one for wood, two for finishing – serve as Smith’s artistic studios. As he’s done most of his life, Smith transforms large, plain “blanks” of foam or balsa wood into wave-riding art.”
