The Surfboard : How Using My Hands Helped Unlock My Mind, Hardback Book

The Surfboard : How Using My Hands Helped Unlock My Mind Hardback



The Surfboard is Dan Kieran's account of a week he spent in Cornwall building a seven-foot surfboard, even though he had never surfed a day in his life.

He did this at a time when he felt he had reached his personal and professional limits: he needed to find a way to break through. Interspersed with the story of making the board - the intricate craft he had to learn, and the clarity of mind that came with that challenge - are the reflections on the obstacles, rewards and realisations he encountered while starting and running a successful business. This startlingly honest book is a finely crafted meditation on the importance of making things for their own sake and pushing beyond our preconceived limitations.
