A Moment With Surfboard Shaper Thomas Bexon
We caught up with Noosa based surfboard shaper Thomas Bexon, who we found at the Noosa Festival of surfing between some beers whilst lapping up the festival vibes. Thomas’s shaping steers away from the classic short board styling, ranging from chopped square tail pocket rockets to the quintessential log. Here’s what he had to say about the week and shaping in his picturesque hometown.
First things first. Noosa fest are you a fan?
Yeah definitely it gets super crowded but it’s good, brings everyone back each year, get waves, get to see a whole bunch of good surfing and drink a few too many beers, can’t really complain about that.
Best place to grab a feed in Noosa?
You can’t go past the old lions van at First Point this week, $5 Rissole Burgers!
What’s the best event to watch during the festival?
The old mal or the logger.
What’s your LEAST favourite thing about being a shaper?
Having to build boards when you want to go surfing.
Have you been working on anything crazy or revolutionary with your shaping lately?
Yeah I got this new secret model that’s coming out with Firewire in the next couple of months, so stay tuned hahaha…
