Peter and Patrice have a son J.J. and a daughter Katie and they hope one day that they will continue the Hurley making tradition.
Peter is a qualified Carpenter/joiner and had 10 years’ experience in the trade before starting making Hurley’s.
His dream throughout his childhood was to become a Hurley maker, and in 2006 he took the plunge and started his own Hurley making business. He spent a year training with well renowned Hurley maker Neddy Gough (R.I.P.), during this time Neddy showed him the craft of Hurley making to a fine art.
He now has accomplished his dream, as he has a thriving Hurley making business. It is a family run business, his wife Patrice looks after all the sales and orders while Peter concentrates on making a top-quality Hurley.
