About me,.. Mark
Born in to surfing & the industry in the sixties, i have over forty years surfing experience & have now been shaping surfboards for over 30 years.
After serving an apprenticeship with my local surfboard sponsor, Rockit Surfboards in Newquay, & many years of dabbling with shaping my own surfboards the Power Source label was finally born in 1988. Today, with a few thousands hand shapes under my belt, i am still as dedicated as ever in & out of the water, & am continually pushing my designs in all conditions & in many directions. I feel my past contest experiences have stood by me, helping me understand the importance of continual research & the understanding of the design elements that put together the modern surfboard. My shaping journey continues to evolve today with the help of important feedback from my International riders & also by embracing the new technology & materials we have around us.. not only in the shaping field but also in the glassing field. I have had the pleasure of working with some very talented surfers in the past, lots of Irish rippers, big wave surfers & travelling surfers including Chris Malloy & Joel Fitzgerald where alongside, i was featured in the shaping bay on Andrew Kidmans classic film "Litmus".
At Power Source surfboards, each board is totally hand crafted from start to finish,& gets individual attention throughout each stage of production. As a shaper I always listen to my customers, not forcing my ideas on them, but more so helping to put their ideas and experiences together with my own, to produce a finished, functional shape. This open thinking results in boards that are special & unique.
All our boards are manufactured from the finest materials available, there are no seconds here!! Our belief is in quality & function. Made with love. Welcome to the Power Source Family.
