Are you ready for surface talk?! This week we’re joined by Paul Kamphuis, general manager at Polytan Asia Pacific,


To talk about hockey turf. Paul tells us how the surface is made, why it’s watered, and he’s got a job Jill would like to do come Games time.

Hockey Turf with Paul Kamphuis

Coincidentally this week was also Hockey Turf Day, so we hoped you celebrated appropriately. If you haven’t, watch “The Surface,” a really interesting documentary about the evolution of hockey turf. The “Smurf Turf,” as it was nicknamed, debuted at the London 2012 Olympics. Paul’s got the details on how the iconic blue and pink look came about.
