FG – HEADSHAPER NEXO EUROPE
FG is our Europe Heashaper and co-founder of Nexo Surfboards. Whereas public relations is not one of his strengths, the man is a genius when it comes to surfboards, shapes, board production and everything that surrounds it. He is always keen on analyzing boards of other shapers, listens with passion to feedback and is interested in shapes and surfboard technology 24/7. A pure perfectionist with all its good and bad habits, a guy that does not like to be in public and would preferably hide behind his shaping mask whenever he cans, but be sure, this man will shape your new magic board.
