Robin Kegel & Gato Heroi
Robin Kegel is the founder and board shaper at Gato Herói, an innovative longboard surf company based in Capistrano Beach, CA. The name Gato Heroi (“Cat Hero”) emphasizes Robin’s unique sense of humor, along with his disdain of hot doggers in the water flailing about wearing leashes (most Gato Heroi boards have no leash attachments). This video shines a light on the art of Gato Herói’s hand-made custom shapes; Robin’s philosophy on surfing; and the story of making of two special charity surfboards for Japan natural disaster relief. While traveling around the world to find the best surf, the Windows Phone Live Tiles keep Robin up to date on what’s happening with one look on his home screen, enabling Robin to run his business easier and faster from anywhere in the world.
