Sport: Vanuatu's top female surfer starts board shaping

From , 4:00 pm on 9 November 2016

Vanuatu's top female surfer is launching a board shaping business that she hopes will encourage more locals to take to the water.

The country's surfing community currently relies on donated surfboards and a limited supply of second-hand boards that are shared round.

Resmah Kalotiti recently spent three weeks in Australia learning the art of making surfboards with Pieter Stockert of Pieter Surfboards.

The 21 year old now plans to launch her own business making fibreglass boards, and told Vinnie Wylie it's a long way from where she started.
