THE 'SEASONS STORY' BEGAN IN THE EARLY 1970'S, WHERE A THEN GROMMY BRYAN 'BJ' SMITH LANDED HIS FIRST JOB AT BLUE SPIRIT SURFBOARDS IN AUCKLAND.

AS ALL WANNABE SHAPERS START OUT HE BEGAN GLUING UP BLANKS, SANDING BOARDS AND REPAIRING DINGS.

WHILE HIS DAYS WERE SPENT AS A DING-BOY, AT NIGHT HE WOULD SKETCH IDEAS FOR HIS OWN COMPANY AND IN 1979 SEASONS SURFBOARDS WAS CREATED.

AFTER TEN YEARS IN 'THE CITY' SEASONS FOUND ITS NEW HOME IN NEW PLYMOUTH, WHERE THE SMITH FAMILY COULD LIVE THE SURF-AT-YOUR-DOOR LIFESTYLE.

BY THE EARLY 90'S, SEASONS HAD BUILT UP A STRONG GROUP OF RIDERS IN NEW PLYMOUTH AND OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS THE TEAM WOULD RACK UP MULTIPLE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS.

FORTY FOUR YEARS DOWN AND SEASONS STILL HAS THE SAME BELIEFS AS IT DID BACK WHEN IT WAS JUST AN IDEA ON A PIECE OF PAPER. SURFING IS ABOUT THE LIFESTYLE, THE FAMILY CULTURE AND ENJOYING YOUR TIME IN THE WATER.
