Story behind a board.
I maybe fully committed to SUP but I'm still a Surfer and love surfing and its history..
Shane Dorian quest for a board
My surfboard shaper, John Carper, was contacted to get involved and when he approached me about it I thought it was a great idea,” says Dorian. “That was the first board I have ever shaped. Brewer cut the outline and handed it off to us, and with JC barking orders at me, I grabbed the planer and went to work.” By the time the board was finished, it had been touched by some of our sport’s greatest craftsmen, including Dick Brewer, Gerry Lopez, Rory Russell, and Randy Rarick. “I am happy with the finished board,” says Dorian. “It is meant to be a vintage design—one of Brewer’s old templates.”
