Yarmouth Chamber Corner
Meet our newest Chamber of Commerce member ÆON Surfboards! We wanted to get to know Brian Carey and Heidi Tidy, the dynamic duo, behind the scenes so we asked a couple questions:
What does your business provide?
Custom eco-friendly Surfboards with the mission to bring awareness back to the roots of surfing. They also want to build up the South West Nova Scotia Surfing community so they’ve created a Facebook Group called “Yarmouth – Shelburne Surf Check” to gather and share info and pics.
What made you want to start this business?
Brian wanted to learn to surf but being born and raised in the Ottawa/Ontario area, there was no ocean nearby. In 2011 he had his first surf experience, found his passion, and has been creating Surfboards ever since for friends and family and turned it into a Business Spring of 2017. He’s always been a woodworker so he put 2 and 2 together and was happy that he could bring an eco-friendlier option.
Who does what?
Brian is the Designer and Shaper of the Surfboards and Heidi is the Product Manager.
How can you be reached?
