Located at 8051 Pacific Rim Highway above the Sproat River and en route to the waves of West coast Vancouver Island, the Klehkoot studio has been a challenging two year restoration project. Still in progress but now open for board restoration. Shaping currently planned by the end of 2022.

the tap mun studio

With the help of Inhwan, Dean, Jess, and the “locals” of Tap Mun, the Tap Mun studio was kept running throughout the hardships of the pandemic restrictions in Hong Kong. But after two and a half years of me struggling to keep costs covered and Hong Kong and China still to this day holding on to pandemic restrictions, we’ll temporarily close the door to shaping and board restoration from September 2022 until early 2023 when I get back to Hong Kong.

shaping change

Every one of us has an urgent responsibility to shape change. Our days are only numbered if you do nothing.

Where does going with the flow ever get you anyway?

There’s always another wave.

Behind every wave there is always another. There is always another chance.

Catch what you need.

And save the rest for someone else.

Live LIFE One smile at a time.

Make choices in your life, not based upon what provides the highest return on investment, but what yields you the highest return on happiness.

It’s the experience, not the acquisition.

It’s not about how you spend it. It’s about how you live it.

Ride your own way.

Be who you want to be. Do what you want to do.
