Inductee Bio

Randy French, owner of Surftech surfboards, has remained relatively quiet throughout the whole Clark foam fiasco. And with legendary shapers such as Rusty Preisendorfer joining in the Surftech crusade, you'd think French would be laughing out loud. However, not one to toot his own horn, and realizing this is not a pleasant time for many in the industry, French remains stoic and focused rather than giddy. This Q & A took place at Surftech HQ in Santa Cruz California in the latter part of December 2005.
SURFERmag.com Ed.SURFERmag.com: Hey Randy, first off, what about this rumor that you are retiring?
RANDY FRENCH: (light laugh, casually commenting) Nah, that's not true. I do travel a lot, but I don't work every day. I have the opportunity now to pass some of my responsibilities on, and focus things I like to do, like R&D and new technologies. I do have a yearly travel schedule that takes me around the world: Hong Kong, Europe, Spain, Maldives, Indo, France, Australia, Hawaii and all business related of course.
