Jarvis Boards founder Tony Smith has built a business around his passion. The one-time stockbroker walked away from a corporate job several years ago to focus his attention on what he loves. Today, the handmade wooden paddleboards he crafts in his Austin studio have found homes around the world. When he’s not making them, you can find him on top of one, because he says there’s something magical about spending time on the water. Tony is thrilled to join the ranks of TPWF’s We Will Not Be Tamed ambassadors. “If I can help give back and spread awareness and get more people outdoors and in nature, I’m all for it. The more that people are in nature, the more they will care about protecting it.”
