GALLERY: Meet a Man Who Helped Shape Surf Culture on Cape Cod

Shawn Vecchione, a Cape Cod native, has helped shape its unique surf culture. He learned to make surfboards when he moved to Hawaii, and now he owns a surf shop in Orleans, Massachusetts where he makes his own boards meant especially for surfing in the imperfect conditions on the Cape. The photos below show Shawn Vecchione using his surfboards in the Cape Cod waters during the winter.
