        Dr. Lorena Lee, DAOM, LAc, CMT, MSTOM   Dr. Lorena Lee descends from a long lineage of Chinese herbalists, but was initially drawn to a career in finance until her acupuncturist encouraged her to pursue a path that focused on improving the health and wellbeing of others.    After completing her education in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Dr. Lee apprenticed with Matt Callison, LAc, an internationally renowned specialist in Sports Medicine Acupuncture. To further her focus in orthopedic medicine, she interned at the UCSD RIMAC Center, where she treated NCAA athletes and facilitated a partnership with their trainers to integrate Eastern and Western sports medicine.    Her patients range from geriatrics, stroke recoverers, surfers, yogis, workaholics, professional athletes, and olympians. She’s found every patient has two things in common: movement and boosting vitality. Dr. Lee’s core value is practicing self-care for her patients. She emphasizes the importance of mind-body connection using Chinese medicine and foundation training. She helps patients meet their goals and provides tools for self-care  to optimize overall health. Her goal is to help as many people as she possibly can to teach them about their body.     You can find more about Lorena on her  website.

        Josh Hall, Surfboard Shaper   They say you're a product of your environment.  If that’s true, then I’m not sure I could have grown up in a better city than San Diego. There, along with its uniquely formed stretch of reefs and sand banks, a cast of colorful characters and varied surf breaks would ultimately shape the style of surfer and designer I’d become.  More specifically, the miles of coast known as Pacific Beach is where I learned most of what I know about riding waves and (later on) making surfboards. I spent a lot of time at its varied breaks listening to and observing, great surfers and shapers like Hank Warner, Eric “Bird” Huffman, Joe Roper, Glenn Horn, Larry Mabile and others. However, at the center of that unique surfing community was the most influential of them all; Skip Frye. Who from the age 18 on, took me under his wing, sharing all he knew about surfing and board design.  Today, I am proud to share with my customers the unique design thread that developed in San Diego, which includes everything from the Steve Lis style of fish to Skip Frye’s big boards some people now call gliders. And while these designs were created to meet the specific needs of my hometown’s breaks, there is such a wide range of wave types here that I guarantee I have a design that will meet the needs of your hometown’s breaks.      Click here  to see boards for sale or order a custom tailored to your needs!
