Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 22 May, 2013 : - - Dick Brewer is to modern surfboard design, what Kelly Slater is to modern day surfing. A contemporary shaping genius who was himself an impressive surfer, Brewer has set the pace in surfboard design for five decades. His designs have affected every generation since the '50s; his boards have been ridden by the sport's best, including Eddie Aikau, Buzzy Trent, Jeff Hakman, Gerry Lopez and Reno Abellira, to Garrett McNamara and Bruce Irons today.
The son of an aircraft machinist, his exceptional handcrafting skills and understanding of outlines, contours and edges continues to translate surfboard "blanks" into highly functional - and collectible - pieces of art.
