Join World Renowned Shaper Mark Richards at Island Water Sports August 15th and check out our new Surfboard Museum.


Mark RicahrdsBased in Newcastle, Australia, Mark Richard’s career began at age 13, when he got an electric planer for Christmas. He competed selectively up until 1980, mainly in Japan, Hawaii, and Australia. He shaped the original Free Ride Twinfin during the winter of 1977 in Newcastle and it became a ground-breaking surfboard, lifting performance surfing to new levels. With this board he won the world championships in 1979, and subsequently in 1980, 1981 and 1982.  After the fourth win in 1982 he retired from competing full-time to again concentrate on shaping. Regardless of your needs, he  makes boards to improve and increase the rider’s enjoyment of surfing.
