Before Shark Tank, before Dragon's Den there was a whole lot of driving and door knocking to pitch and launch a successful business idea. Surf entrepreneur, surf brand pioneer and retailer extraordinaire Kent Ladkin talks about surf shops, the current state of play, what he believes the future holds and the 'age of the Waterman'.
In this Smorgasboarder podcast we look at a different aspect of the surf industry through the eyes of a guy who has lived and breathed it for over 40 years. Kent shares his insights on everything from bricks and mortar to online retail, surf fashion through to surf hardware and his love for epoxy surfboards.
