Surfing and surfboards have always been a way of my life. It began with my Dad, who has been making boards for as long as I can remember. From the age of ten, I would sit at the door and watch him shape, glass and sand boards in a tin shed out the back of our house. Being so in love with the process, it was only natural I got on the planer and learned myself. After that first surf on that first board, I knew this was all I wanted to do: make surfboards and surf them. The feeling of riding something you have made with your own hands is truly amazing.
My brother Mitch is now a full-time team rider and test pilot, helping push my designs to the next level. While my dream is to one day become the premiere shaper on the Gold Coast and further this region’s reputation as the mecca of board design and craftsmanship.
