Our guest this week was born in Brazil. He was fortunate to do a lot of traveling at an early age and hasn’t stopped since. He has lived in Brazil, Japan, Australia and the US. He shaped his first surfboard at 15 years old. 2 years later he knew it was his destiny to build boards for a living and opened a surfboard factory at the age of 17. In the 90’s having Gerr, Donovan, and Lisa Andersen with 2 world titles under her feet, elevated him to be one of the most well known and most progressive shapers of the time. Fast forward to today, with 40 plus years of fine tuning his craft, he is still on top of his game….. pushing new designs and innovations. We are so STO-KED to have one of the best, most recognizable, and most influential shapers of all time…. Mr. Xanadu!
