OUR YOUNGEST SHAPER

LOVES PIN TAIL BONZERS

ALL RETRO CRAFT

I guess they have a ‘retro’ aesthetic, but they function very differently to the boards from previous eras. A few of my boards have similar outlines to boards from the 60’s and 70’s, but they’re a lot thinner and foiled-out than those older boards, making them a little more user-friendly and easier to surf in critical conditions.

I shape those styles of boards because I enjoy the way they perform more than shorter or modern ‘high performance’ boards. It’s a different experience riding boards that allow you to glide and trim (like a traditional log), but when you want to put them on rail and surf them more aggressively, you need the shape to enable that.

As surfers, we’re constantly searching for that magic all-rounder that you can have fun on every single surf. For me, I’m usually seeking a board that’s functional – but sometimes all I want to ride is something super-retro and rad.

True, my boards aren’t for everyone but that’s because they’re totally different to boards with single-to-double concaves, as most of my shapes have convex bottoms from tip to tail. Like everything in surfing, if people approach them with an open-mind, I think most would be surprised by they way (and how well) they perform
