Wave Pool Board Theory with Christiaan Bradley

Mild-mannered Quiksilver shaper Christiaan Bradley makes sleds for Leo Fiorivanti, Jesse Mendes and France’s hot crop of future stars. Originally from Tasmania, he cut his teeth in the shaping bays of the Gold Coast before bouncing around the globe and landing in Hossegor, France as the central gear in the Euroglass factory machine.

In this first installment of WavePoolMag’s original series “Wave Pool Board Theory” we explore Christiaan’s shaping history and get his take on wave pool surfboard designs. This mini-documentary gets detail-oriented, as Christiaan dishes advice on how best to adjust your quiver for a host of wave pools, including Snowdonia, BSR, Kelly’s and the Wavegarden Cove.
