“While Simon Anderson never won any world titles, mainly because he was sequestered in his shaping bay, he gave back to the sport in ways that will never be fully appreciated…….every single world champion since 1982 has ridden his design to victory. From Tom Carroll’s massive gouges at Pipeline, to Tom Curren’s Rincon carves, Martin Potter’s aerial antics, Mark Occhilupo’s high speed carves, to global domination by Slater and Irons…Simon’s design was slowly refined by shapers around the world to maximize its potential.

“Interestingly enough, Simon never received a dime from other shapers who borrowed his design theory. But that’s nothing new in the surfboard business, where patents are next to non-existent…You see, you enter this world because it’s your passion…after all, the only thing that really matters is how good your next ride is, and how many you can give away. Lucky for us, Simon Anderson has given us all our share. Chris Mauro for The Surf Vault.
