Inside Shaper Studios

Rentable shaping bays are enabling long-time surfers to become first-time shapers

Started less than two years ago by Bay Area transplant Chris Clark, the idea was that Shaper Studios would provide the shaping bays, the templates, and the tools in exchange for a membership fee—like a gym for foam and fiberglass buffs.

Hit and Run

Todd Glaser on getting run over by Craig Anderson for our July cover

SURFER Staff Photographer Todd Glaser is used to being in precarious situations. Call it “Occupational Hazard,” but when you put yourself under the lip at a heavy slab, with a bulky water housing in tow and a fiberglass plank flying towards you, accidents are bound to happen. When Glaser trained his lens at Craig Anderson on the wave of the day in Tahiti a few months back, he ended up getting a little more than he bargained for, including the cover shot for our July issue.

Shaped By Waves

A spot-specific look at Greg Long's big-wave quiver

According to Chris Christenson, shaper to the big-wave elite, there is no greater influence on modern gun design than the waves themselves. “With each spot, you’ve got a new set of factors that the equipment needs to compensate for,” says Christenson. “You have to take everything into account, because at the end of the day you’re basically building parachutes—they just have to work.”

The Billabong XXL Awards

Shane Dorian and Shawn Dollar dominate the biggest night in big-wave surfing

Last night the most audacious wave riders and scantily-clad surf fans arrived at the Grove in Anaheim for the 2013 Billabong XXL Awards. What followed was an emotional look back at one of the most eventful years in the history of big-wave surfing. The massive swells ridden at Jaws, Cloudbreak, and Cortes Bank provided not only a glimpse into the future of big-wave surfing, and what these surfers are truly capable of achieving, but also a much more sobering look at the importance of water safety in this era of broken limits.

Done Premiere

John John Florence makes his mark on the big screen at La Paloma

As the lights of North County’s La Paloma Theater dimmed and tall cans emerged not-so-subtly from brown paper bags, excitement was running high, as were expectations. In the opening frames an orchestral melody came from the house speakers as John John launched into a massive full rotation on his backhand. He looked calm, casual, and expressionless. Even while spinning 6 feet above the lip, John John Florence may as well have been sleepwalking.
