AEG Shaper Series: Mitchell Rae - Outer Island Surfboards
"I was 12. I took the board I had at the time over to Barry Bennett and I swapped him for enough materials to make myself a board. I went up to my mates place on the hill there at Dee Why and proceeded to make my first surfboard."
AEG Shaper Series: Mike Psillakis
"Surfing is an art form, it lets people express themselves on a wave the way they want to, and I think making a surfboard by hand should be recognised as an art form too."
AEG Shaper Series: Jordie Brown from Hightide Surfcraft
"I just want to stay small and niche, I want to remain really hands on and keep it personal with the customer, you know, deliver the board myself and go for a surf with them.."
AEG Shaper Series: Sage Joske
"As a shaper I can research different periods of history and make myself the equipment to experience it on."
MARK RABBIDGE"There is so much variety now and the boards are so much better now, I mean they’re all recycled designs but it’s important, I think, to blend the old and the new."
