Surfer. Shaper.

Otherwise known as "Vec"- Shawn is known throughout the world as a brand name of Surf. His mother, a native Hawaiian, and father, a native Cape Codder, it was inevitable that he would fall in love with surfing and the ocean. 

Shawn started his action sport's career as a pro snowboarder for Burton Snowboards and was the first pick for the US Olympic Team 1990. After an unfortunate accident where he injured his spine- he flew to Hawaii and learned to ride the big waves in Oahu. 

But his heart was still on the Cape. So he packed his bags and headed home. He started the Boarding House. He helped pioneer the first pro contests in New England and traveled the coast with sponsors. 

 10,000 shaped surfboards later, shaping boards for Vec, Dick Brewer and Billy Hamilton and being one of the pioneers of the Stand Up Paddleboard. He has made boards for some of the best surfers in the world and is still surfing, shooting pics, and traveling to cold pristine locales for his sponsors.  Vec has also been known to swim with Great White sharks.

His love for palm trees are getting lost as his love for pine trees is growing. New England is his home, keep your eyes out for Vec in the future, you never know what he will be shaping, who will be riding, and where he will be surfing!
