on Fins, Grips & Leashes Within Australia
My shaping career began at age 13, when I got an electric planer for Christmas. There was no such thing as Pro Surfing in those days, and if you surfed, the dream career was to work in the surfboard industry.
Still based in Newcastle, Australia, where I was born, and I have a retail Surfshop and surfboard manufacturing business. My time is mostly spent mowing foam, and trying to get some water time.
I'm still involved with Professional surfing, so I have firsthand knowledge of what the Pros are riding. I have a great team of committed riders who give me constant feedback on my boards. But, having less time in the water than I did in my Pro career, I can also identify personally with the needs of the recreational surfer. I am constantly refining and developing my designs, based on the feedback I receive from others and my own experience riding my designs in conditions from perfect Indo waves to hometown Merewether beachbreaks. In the last two years I have travelled to Japan, Hawaii, France , and the Mentawai Islands , and my boards performed incredibly in all these varied conditions.
Regardless of your needs, whether it's a shortboard or a mal, I'm confident I can make you a board which will improve and increase your enjoyment of your surfing. We cut no corners in the production of MR boards. We work on the principle of low output / high quality. We use only the finest materials available. Australian Burford blanks, and imported American resin and fibreglass.
