Behind the Shaper is a new Lipped series presented by Surf Visuals and Urbnsurf.

This episode features the universally respected Corey Graham.

Creative, unique and passionate - Corey grew up around his fathers surfboard factory and has been infatuated with surfboards, design and creating mess ever since.

Behind the Shaper is a brand new series presented by Urbnsurf and Surf Visuals that celebrates the tales of the most important people in surfing, the shapers.

The first instalment of Behind The Shaper features well-known and underground shapers from Victoria’s iconic Surf Coast, a birthplace of surfing culture, industry and craftsmanship regarded around the world. What started out as a small project quickly ballooned into a 80 page magazine with photography by Ed Sloane and the construction of custom surfboards to be ridden by the shapers in URBNSURF Melbourne’s lagoon later in 2019.

We are joined by the Independent Candidate for Corangamite and one of the leaders of the fight against exploratory drilling in the Great Australian Bight Damien Cole.

We are also joined by climate change expert Scott Ferraro to discuss the fight for the bight and why it represents a starting point for the journey to a zero emission economy.

This isn't a platform to rant, this episode is designed to be a conversation about climate change and why the changes necessary to avoid the worst of climate change will require the greatest mobilisation of society in history.

The Nudie Australian Boardriders battle has tapped into the passion of grassroots surf culture.

Clubs from all over Australia compete to join some of the worlds best surfers in Newcastle every February where teams battle for prestige and cash.

In 2019 Jesse Adam led Merewether Boardriders Club to victory, defeating teams that included the likes of Joel Parkinson, Wade Carmichael and Macy Callaghan.  

But the weekend is more than just winning and losing.  It's a celebration of boardriders culture in Australia.  Clubs not only foster the next generation of Australian surfers but are often the cultural heart of our coastal communities.

In this episode we discuss the ABB and the broader role of boardriders clubs in Australian surf culture with Jesse and Torquay Boardriders Club president Cahill Bell Warren.

It's so surf it hurts and it's fuelled by the legends at Salt Brewing

In 2018 we took a look at almost every board shorts brand on the market to find the best performance board shorts.  We defined this as the shorts you'd take on your dream boat trip.

The Quiksilver Highline New Wave Pro's took the honours....but here's the thing.  There hasn't been a lot of new development in the boardshort space in 2018, which makes it hard to recycle everything we said last year.

Thankfully two brands launched new and innovative shorts that broke the mould from their previous designs and brought new fabrics, constructions and ideas to the table.

So in this episode we deep dive into the creation and performance of the Patagonia Hydroflow boardshorts and the Rip Curl 3/2/One Ultimate boardshorts.

Featuring interviews with the creators and designers and a full review against all of last years best performing shorts.

Interesting folks, harsh opinions and a whole lot of surf geekery.

Derek Rielly is the founder of Beachgrit & Stab Magazine and has been shaping some of the more unique ways we view surf culture since the late 90's.

He's founded mags, written books about Australian legends (Wednesdays with Bob), succeeded richly and failed miserably.

In this episode we chat about creating Stab, surfing wave pools, surf industry gravy trains and how being trampled on is character building.

Creative, interesting and sometimes controversial Derek offers a fascinating view on surfing through a sometimes alternative lens.
