“No one chooses to become a surfboard shaper. You certainly don’t choose it for the money or the fame. Tom has dreamt of surfboards since a very young age and continues to do so. With an intense interest in surfboard history he has delved into every type of surfboard design across the decades (and centuries).”
Brett is a rad all-rounder, is super adaptable to a variety of surfcraft particularly old school logs and the lengthy Gliders. We love having Brett for these reasons and he’s stoked to be in the mix again for 2020.
