Gary McNeill starts shaping tour in Ericeira this March/April
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 10 March, 2017 - Magic Quiver and Wavegliders have announced another international guest shaper, Gary McNeill from Queensland Australia, widely known for his work with Dave Rastovich, progressive designs like the torus channel bottom and sacred geometric graphics. For this shaping visit all boards will be shaped and glassed at the Wavegliders factory in Ericeira and can be ordered through Magic Quiver.
Gary McNeill, started his journey in Wollongong, New South Wales. Growing up in a community of incredible shapers and surfers, Gary found his way into the shaping bay at the tender age of 12, experimenting with an old longboard.
Gary worked with industry heavy weights like Firewire, DHD and JS and spent many years in the Gold Coast melting pot of shapers, bouncing off ideas with other shapers and developing new designs. With free surfing legend Dave ‘Rasta’ Rastovich as his test pilot, Gary was able to formulate and produce some incredibly fast and effortlessly flowing boards. Gary and Rasta have been working independently under the Gary McNeill Concepts brand for six years and are continuing to release some of the most progressive fusion boards available in the market.
