In the Japanese language Hokori stands for dust, the exact same word is used for pride. It both encapsulates the process of making hollow wooden surfboards. Knowing we are mere dust in the wind but feeling a sense of pride and achievement in doing what we love. In constant search of the balance between manmade shapes and organic materials, every board is a journey towards an unique and functional end product.
At Hokori you can have a custom wooden board built to your specification. Shaped and crafted with passion, dedication, pride and dust. hokori.org
This movie is the result of a trip to the southern part of France were a group of Hokori friends and professional film makers shared their passion for video and surfing and combined it into spherical movie.
