Is your business better or worse since the Clark Foam shutdown?
Clark Foam closing dramatically changed the surfboard business forever. Its closing would not have had as much impact if we would have had some notice. Gordon Clark “sold out” the very industry that made him a very wealthy man, leaving everyone scrambling for foam. A couple of years down the road now we are all shaping higher quality foam and have experimented with a wide variety of materials. In the end, Clark’s closing help the industry evolve.
