MATT HURWORTH/SHAPER/SURFER. 20 years ago,
Matt Hurworth started shaping as a shadow shaper for the big Australian surf craft factories. Gunhter Ron shaper for Local Motion was one of the first that looked after him and influenced a lot his way of shaping.
After few years, learning with passion all the complex characteristic of the surfboard, Matt started his first step as main shaper in Shaping Co.Surfboards, one of the oldest surfboard manufactured in Australia. Meanwhile an up-coming surfer did his apparition on the surfing scene, Chippa Wilson.
The alchemy between the two came naturally. Matt was an ex-competitor, looking after surfboard high performance design and Chippa, innovative free surfer. The relationship between surfer and shaper was inevitable.
"When Chippa ordered his first board with me, it was an exciting time. Because he redefines surfing and pushes the boundaries to new levels. Doing that, I have to be creative to shape the ultimate performance surfboard which has pushed my boundaries too as a shaper" MH. Shaper.
Nowadays, Matt Hurworth created his own brand, MH Surfboards located in South Tweed where creativity takes place for providing the best new surfboard design available in Australia. And with Chippa, they continue to create new designs that will amaze you once you get one of their boards.
