Shaun Cansdell Shapes is a new surfboard shaping label focused on innovative, high performance surfboards with individual client needs in mind. Shaun's personal belief in designing a unique piece of art for each surfer has him looking towards creating a vast range of boards to expand upon his current collection. A skilled surfer with a lifelong, keen interest in surfboard shaping is the driving force behind this new and growing brand.

'Surfing has been my passion since I first balanced on a board when I was 5 years old. To really get the full benefits of surfing I always held a healthy respect for the craft under my feet. A great board could change 2 foot slop into a fun little wave. A great board can give you the confidence you need when you pull into a big barrel.

After spending the last 15 years in the professional surfing arena, it's only served to further interest me in the science and art of shaping. So to become a shaper.... it feels like such a natural progression' - Shaun Cansdell
