Shapers are the unsung heroes of the surfing industry - a crazy thought, considering they’re the creators of the very thing that singularly defines us as “surfers”. But, just like our generations of talented watermen & women, Australian shapers have been at the forefront of the industry for decades.
It’s our belief that ordering a board is a deeply personal practice. Something that should be considered, discussed and decided upon carefully. Rather than take away from part of that experience, we’d prefer to add to it.
For that very reason you won’t find surfboards for sale on Surf Collective. What you will find is a showcase of our favorite Australian shapers. We’ll share what we know of their story, and what we love about their boards, along with their contact details.
We’re not turning a profit from it, but we’d love if you could ‘pay-it-forward’ and drop our name, when you decide to order that rad new custom whip from one of these incredible craftsmen.
