Shaper | Daniels Surfboards
Growing up in Bronte on the east coast, surfing quickly became a huge part of Luke Daniels life. After shaping his first board over 10 years ago with his Dad and Pa, it ignited something in him to keep on creating surf crafts. Not having had any formal shaping training; his hand skills were gained from working as a carpenter and has proven more than useful. His surfing IQ has come from riding a wide variety of boards from the different eras, surfing waves all over the globe and leaning from surfing's elders.
