Roger Hinds shaping career has spawned four decades and encompassed the multi-faceted evolution of the short board. From his early days of stripped down long boards during the transition era, ... to refining his skills under the tutelage of the likes of Ed Angulo, Jeff Edwards and Kent Smith. 70’s North Shore soul with Country Surfboards and Lightning Bolt and team riders spanning the era’s and all disciplines from Jock Sutherland and Mike Armstrong to Long board World Champions Rusty Keaulana and Taylor Jensen. Production shaping for the likes of Blue Hawaii, Russ K, Harbour, Hobie and Weber, as well as head shaper for Bear USA. "His attention to detail has lead to some of the most popular plugs for Clark Foam and US Blanks. He won of The Icons of Foam shape-off back to back in 2014 & 2015 at The Boardroom Show first honoring Ben Aipa then Rusty Preisendorfer. He came in second at the Ultimate Craftsman Project at the same show losing by only one tenth of a point. That same detail is reflected in start to finish shape, glass, color and polish of impeccable quality. Roger Hinds lives the art of surfboard construction." – Randy Rarick
