We are proud to welcome Nev Hyman to the Surf Lakes advisory board. Nev has been a staple of the surf industry after being at the forefront of the development of surfboard design and manufacturing technology for over four decades as the founder of Nev Future Shapes and then Firewire Surfboards. In more recent times, Hyman has gained global acclaim for his development of Nev House, which produces affordable, truly off the grid, eco-friendly homes, school classrooms, medical clinics and other structures made from recycled materials. We believe that Nev’s many years of business experience as well as his driving desire to “give back” will be invaluable to Surf Lakes as we expand. Once again… welcome Nev!
