Who's Your Shaper

dean.jpgmy history Рsince I was 14 years old my life has been dedicated to surfing!

It was during my competitive career that I started to develop my keen interest in shaping which began when I was 17, in 1987. Whilst I completed my B.Soc.Sc degree my surfing and shaping blossomed. Being a 3x South African surfing champion and 3x national team member has allowed me to utilize my knowledge of performance surfing to produce functional shapes for surfers who need them.

After shaping over 15000 surfboards to date, I have honed my skills to design functional surf craft for a wide range of surfers , whilst establishing the brands like T&C /Nev /Geraghty and Surf Shapes in South Africa and now Geraghty Shapes here in Australia. In 2012, I moved over to Australia to further my expertise in Composite Moulding Technology and whilst this takes up most of my time, any spare time is  taken up with free-surfing and shaping in my bay making custom boards designed on Shape 3D and then machine cut and finished by hand for the locals on the Sunshine Coast.

If it is a custom surfboard design you are after, you can contact me on 042-2442044 in Australia or email me at

Until then Stay Stoked and see you in the water!
