CORY SURFBOARDS

46

27 YEARS SHAPING

Despite Cory’s first introduction to the water being on a bodyboard at Ocean Grove main beach, he quickly progressed to fiberglass thanks to the generosity of a family friend. As it turns out, this board was a Hot Buttered thruster with a Terry Fitz rainbow spray on the deck. Epic.

MADE IN OCEAN GROVE

THOUSANDS OF BOARDS

CHASING MILLIMETRES

These days Cory’s “chasing millimetres” on his designs to “find errors, and work our what you like or dislike about a board, and ultimately what you want to improve”. Perfection is the aim, and Cory’s motivated by the challenge of making the perfect board, whether for his team riders or customers. “It may not be the perfect board for everybody, but as long as it’s the perfect board for them, then I’ve done my job”.

I 100% love [shaping]. Obviously family comes first, but I absolutely love it. If I’m not shaping boards for a couple of weeks, I’m getting grumpy. It’s a similar feeling to not being able to surf during a flat spell – I just have to do it. I could not imagine not being able to do it.”
