Jason Pope, known by the locals on Folly Beach as Flea is the guy to know. Especially if it's after you've taken a good spill off a double overhead and end up with a nice ding on your board. He specializes in damage on high-end performance boards, but dose a bang up job on long boards too.

Portrait: Brett Ratner

A few years ago I was helping to produce a shoot for Bean Pole Clothes, and it was shot at Brett Ratner's Hillheaven Lodge (aka his house). The shoot was a lot of fun, and Brett was surprisingly a really great guy, with so many great stories.
