Gary McNeill's been surfing for over 50 years and has been shaping surfboards since he was 16 years old. Based in Fingal Head in NSW, Gary McNeill Concepts (his brand) have produced surfboards for free surfer and environmentalist Dave Rastovich, musicians Jack Johnson and Ziggy Alberts, and filmmaker Taylor Steele, to name just a few. Gary loves experimenting with materials, and his 'Treetech Flax' range of boards use natural flax cloth instead of fibreglass. Listen to Gary talk about his preferred materials, the importance of good craftsmanship and maintenance of boards, and much more.
