Lineage: The Ocean's Gift To Koz McRae

More than a surfer and shaper, Koz McRae is a father and son, whose upbringing makes him recognize the value of having the ocean in his kid's lives. Being a sacred space for him he hopes to ensure that both his loved ones and the ones that he does not know are able to enjoy and experience the ocean in the way that he has been fortunate to. Through experience and crafting custom surfboards, Koz translates his appreciation for the ocean into art.
