About the shaper
Marcie grew up surfing in Australia and started designing surfboards at the Aloha Factory back in ’89. Coming from a traditional, yet eccentric background, Marcie integrates key components from proven vintage shapes in his creations. Looking at the different shapes he creates, the lines and rockers, you can see the evolution of proven high-performance shapes, taking advantage of the latest constructions and techniques available.
