Gary McNeill, one of Australia’s finest shapers and Dave Rastovich’s board builder of choice 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. Throughout his teenage years Gary travelled the country to compete in regional and national events. Despite being sponsored by legendary shaper Phil Byrne, Gary continuously focused on refining his board building skills and rode many of his own designs in competition. 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.
