Rui centeno é o que se pode chamar "o verdadeiro multiglider". Surfa de bodyboard ; eggs ; fishs ; longboards etc. Não liga a logotipos, simplesmente gosta de disfrutar o que o mar tem para lhe ofecerer. Aqui num bonito carving no veiculo que ele próprio concebeu algures na ericeira.
No passado ano 2007 tive a oportunidade de visitar as instalações da homeblown surf foam systems em inglaterra. É de louvar o empenho do sr Tris Cokes no desenvolvimento do foam feito á base de matérias orgânicas. Agora só cabe a nós shapers e surfistas dar o segundo passo. USÁLOS para beneficio e em prol da natureza.
I shape boards that i´m interested in riding. Logs, hulls, single fins, tradicional fishes or prototypes that are combinations of these designs. I believe in customizing surfboards for the individual. I grew up with access to this kind of one on one experience, for me it has been one of the most enjoyable parts of the surfing journey. I´de like to continue to make that experience available for other surfers. Shaping surfboards is a craft, it takes years and years to develope ones skills. I shape and teste every each model untill it´s been exaustly refined the way i want to surf. Sometimes this translates for other surfers, sometimes it doesn´t. This is the beauty of one on one custom shaping, the shaper is able to talk about and consider what the surfer wants before aplying his skills and experience.
I don´t believe in making cheap replicated surfboards. We´re available to custom orders only. all boards are shaped from a blank.
