In the shaping bay with Mark Rabbidge

Hand Made: A Portrait of Mark Rabbidge

Mark Rabbidge is a rare artisan in the world of surfing. As a professional longboarder through the 80s he shaped surfboards for several champion surfers. Notably he shaped boards for Pam Burridge, the 1990 world champion, who also happens to be his wife .

Mark lives on the South Coast of NSW, Australia. He has always been connected to the ocean, and is constantly on the pursuit for uncrowded waves. His other passion is cars, and he builds them to suit his unique personality.

Mark Rabbidge: surfer, shaper & creator

Whether shaping a surfboard or building a car, the common thread is that everything Mark makes is one of a kind.
