CONVERSATION WITH MAURICE, MODERATE WITH DAVE MAILMANOrateurs : Maurice COLE , Dave MAILMAN
As a shaper, nothing beats feedback that someone has just had a magical experience on a board you’ve created for them. This spurs me on to design surfboards that go faster, carve harder and showcase a continual evolution of performance virtues. Along the way, I’ve been pushing the boundaries of high-speed tow surfing, have worked closely with the world’s best surfers to feed their information back into the design process and have constantly strived to develop manufacturing credentials that are both sustainable and world’s best practice.
I’ve been tremendously fortunate to be a surfer and a surfboard designer at a fascinating time in the history of this unique pastime. Over the last half century, I’ve had a wealth of experiences that have influenced innumerable shapes, ideas and visions and am proud to be able to share all this with the next generation of surfboard craftsmen.
