Shaper Profile – Vanda

Vanda has been surfing since he was 8 years old, and shaping boards since he was 15. He learnt handshaping from legendary Bells Beach shaper Michael Anthony. After doing this for about 6 years he spent some time watching some local glassing experts and decided to give that a go too.


He started experimenting with the carbon fibre railed boards, using expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) and epoxy resin. This became a bit of a speciality for him and now constitutes about 90% of boards out the door.
