Nev Hyman

WORLD RENOWNED SHAPER

World renowned shaper and International Hall of Fame Surfboard Builder, Nev began shaping surfboards in his garage in a suburb north of Perth in 1972. A year later, he and two colleagues started Odyssey Surfboards. Nev built surfboards there until 1977, when he moved to Burleigh Heads and launched Nev Hyman surfboards. He later started two other companies: Nev Future Shapes and Firewire Surfboards. In the early ‘90s, Nev was among the pioneers of computer shaping and was involved in the development of surfboard design software that eventually became the industry standard. Nev now stocks an entire range with The Surfboard Warehouse, bringing his surfboard expertise to Australia at affordable prices.
