The Southern Soul Surfboards Story
Like most surfboard shapers I started out shaping under
an open carport with a sanding block and file, crafting
a tear drop shape that became my first thruster.
It was the early 80's and at that point I left behind
my single fin surfing days and followed the masses into
the tri fin revolution. For the next 24 years
I shaped and surfed tri fins of many different shapes
Recently, a flashback of inspiration and memories of
the past free flowing soulful single fin days, fired me
to create a modern bottom curve with the characteristics
and soul of the fantastic plastic of the past.
The application of these ideas is on a range of single
fin boards from 6'4" to 7'1" which has lifted
me to an exciting and rewarding phase in my surfing and
All of these boards have been test proven in the unforgiving
test area of Winkipop, Bells Beach and Maldives and not
one has failed. Fast, responsive, positive,
easily driven and easily paddled these boards offer a
distinctive performance that will re-energise your surfing.
