Gavin Upson's new board brand debuts under Jadson Andre's feet

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 8 April, 2015 - Bells Beach, Australia - 1-DA Shapes surfboards made their first appearance in a CT event this month, with Jadson Andre riding the Elite model at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach. Jadson grasped the opportunity last month to work closely with our former DHD/Base shaper, Gavin Upson.

Andre was the first to ride one of Upson's new 1-DA shapes in a CT event, where he beat Taj Burrow in a feisty Round 3 heat, before going down in Round 5 to an in-form looking Mick Fanning, resulting in an =9th place.

“I’m absolutely stoked. It’s only been just over a year since we officially launched 1-DA Shapes and we’ve come this far already," said Upson. "Super stoked to reach this milestone. One small step closer towards that final goal of creating more world champions.”
