I’ve been kneeboarding for nearly 40 years and have surfed a lot of waves on a lot of different boards. I started shaping my own boards in the late 70’s and loved the sense of achievement & satisfaction when something i made worked so well, but when family life calls, luxuries like making kneeboards takes a back seat to actual work that actually makes money. The GFC came along in 2008 and gave me the time to get back into the shaping bay again and it was like riding a bike. It all came back although now it’s with glasses. With an improvement in new materials now readily available, this got me onto the Carbon/EPS track. I’ve never been able to just leave well enough alone and need to try new things. The “Native” logo although used by others just seemed to fit with the look and feel of my boards. My inspiration comes from many areas, existing shapers from all forms even bodyboard design. I try to infuse my boards with aspects of anything that might improve the knee riding experience like speed, agility, ride comfort , ease of paddling and fun. We’re not all pro surfers so getting into the water for some of us is not an everyday thing , when the opportunity presents itself we want it to be......... well thats up to you, but for me it should be refreshing and as exciting as the first time.
