Our Work

About me

Born and raised in Antwerp, Belgium and the nearest beach an hour drive away, it was not that obvious to start a business in wooden surfboard building
The love for surfing started 20 years ago after a visit to Biarritz. I told my girlfriend (now wife) that one day I would start surfing myself because it looked like a fun thing to do.
6 years later and father of our twin girls, I hired my first surfboard, a 9ft single fin from NSP.
Those 2 weeks in France I spend most of the time in the water than on my board but the passion never left me again.

A year later I bought my first surfboard somewhere on the internet, a 8ft mini Malibu. 
The following years I started to try to improve my skills and at this moment I can call myself an average surfer. I never have the intension to become a pro, I just want to enjoy my times on the water. Those moments are my “ZEN time”.
Me, the board and the sea. Everything else is not important.

After I joined Surfrider Foundation Europe as a member I became to realise that riding a foam board was not that eco-friendly (no offense to those who love surfing foam surfboards). So I started my searched for a wooden version.
2 years ago I stumbled upon a workshop in Holland (Macsurf) were you could build your own wooden surfboard. During this workshop I discovered that this was totally was my thing.
In April 2016, I started my own business in Wooden surfboards, nothing big, no mass production but with a lot of passion and vitamin L(ove).

Do I want to become a rich and famous shaper? No.
Share the trill of surfing a wooden surfboard? Yes!
