A great get together of pasionate Shapers and Surfers who share their interest and creativity for Wooden Surfboards of all shapes and sizes.


Mike Connor, Tom Wegener and myself at the Gold Coast Surf Museum preparing to talk about Wood. (Wooden Surfboard Day 2010).


Sharing stories about the adventures of building Wooden Surfboards is part of the show.

Speaking at the Gold Coast Museum – Wooden Surfboard Day 2010


The Wooden Board Day is all about meeting great people. . .

Talking Wooden Boards with Paul Joske – Paul has fascinating stories about his Wooden Board building adventures and he has been a major inspiration to me over the years.


Talking Hot Curls with Dick Van Straalen – Dick is holding a Balsa Hot Curl he made which I got to ride and was instrumental in my decision to shape my first Hot Curl.
