An Interview With Rob Lion

Rob Lion started shaping surf boards at the end of 2003, just making boards for friends, in a shed in the Bahamas. He had just moved back there after living in the US for 20 years, and in California for the last 8. In 2004 he moved to Brazil to work in a factory in Florianopolis. In 2006 he moved to Newcastle, UK, and have been working out of a small shop in the back of his house pretty steadily since.

At they conducted an interview with him.

We contacted Rob Lion as part of our mission to document some of the exciting emerging shapers who are pushing themselves in terms of materials and design. Rob’s work is insane. He does everything from design, to making his own EPS blanks, to shaping and glassing and even colour work.
