From deep behind the Flannel Curtain comes Chris Herbst: an art teacher, crafter and shaper operating out of Ashland, Oregon. We specialize in custom handmade surfboards and stand-up paddle boards, and hand-painted trucker hats. Our work is inspired by the Northwest - our great community of artists, sportsmen and women, landscapes, outdoor pursuits, bright colors, and most importantly… Flow. Everything we make is fully custom-made to order. We love to take ideas and bring them to life. Whether it's a surfboard or hat, we put all our creative energies into your chosen product. Our designs here are meant to inspire your ideas - you can purchase a hat exactly like what you see, or order a custom Flow Factory product line with your unique flavor.
Flow, a state of mind in which a person performing an activity is totally immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does.-Mihaly Csikszentmaihalyi [Positive Psychologist]
