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

Our last episode for this series features Shyama Buttonshaw.

Shyama was born and raised just around the corner from Bells Beach and his surfing and shaping lineage is deeply woven into the iconic break. 

His surfing mentors include Simon Anderson, Maurice Cole, Corey Graham, Wayne Lynch and Greg Brown.  All of whom have created, innovated and made famous statements upon the hallowed walls of the Bells Bowl.

More than just a surfer shaper, Shyama blends art, surfing and shaping into a fluid and unique mix and recently this has led to his inclusion in the Stab Electric Acid Surfboard Test.

In this episode we explore his origins, his relationships with his mentors and how a 18 month injury lay off has revitalised his surfing.

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.

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

John Robertson (known universally as Robbo) is a throwback to the golden age of surfer shapers.  From his beloved "playground" Robbo is constantly testing and refining boards and his own understanding of what works when.

Also a throwback is the classic Australian shaper and retail set-up at Strapper surfboards.  There's something quintessentially Australian about buying a Robbo from Strapper knowing that the bloke that made it, did so less than 20 metres from where you're standing.

Even better you know it's full of the passion and experience, built by the guy in the local stores, who loves the local waves that he's been surfing his whole life.

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.

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.

Enjoy Boardshorts 2019

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.
