Shaping the South Bay one board at a time

Wayne Okamoto has been shaping surfboards here in the South Bay for over 30 years.  “It seems like every surfer in the South Bay has been on an Oaks board at some point” stated Chris Wells.  Wayne shapes boards in a quiet industrial park on Manhattan Beach Blvd., which is where we sat down with him to discuss his shaping past and future for this edition on the Civic Couch Show.
