You can spot a "wood sniffer” by the way their eyes light up when they spot a piece of timber. Their rough hands run tenderly along the fibres and you can see the satisfaction when they take a big ol’ whiff. They have a grounded passion and appreciation in the potential of transforming a lump of local wood into something special...

As a part of 'The Way It Should Be' series, we are introduced to fifth generation wood sniffer, Andy Ceglinski from sawmill to surf.

'The Way It Should' Be profiles people who've gravitated to the Northern Rivers for a more conscious lifestyle, the series tells the stories of locals and their connection to our community, the environment and their craft.

"It seemed like such a rewarding idea to be able to mill the wood and handcraft this board then surf it...It’s a combination of all the things I love."

Andy's sustainable approach is not to make a heap of surfboards to sell and pocket millions of dollars. He'd rather enjoy the experience of making a quality product, and he'd be stoked if he could after it all, make a humble living from it. 

Andy's story is similar to that of Stone & Wood. Many of the team, have chosen to move to the Northern Rivers for the life it offers, to work with purpose and be a part of this special community. The area has helped bring to life their philosophies around what was great about village breweries, and what a conscious business should be.

“Like any good honourable business, we're trying to do good things for the community and for the environment."

Watch Andy's humbling story through his approach to doing business and how he sees his responsibility as a leader in the community, and be prepared to put in your order for a board that smells this good.
