Vissla Sydney Surf Pro
For the second year in a row Vissla built a pop-up shaping bay on the promenade above North Steyne Beach at Manly during the Vissla Sydney Surf Pro. The idea behind the buildout being that while competitors pop off air reverses in the soft beachbreaks, shapers could work away in the shack, connect with other foam mowers and ground the event in true surf culture simply by working on their craft in a public space.
Check out some photos of Nick hand shaping a Fireball Fish in the Vissla bay. Thanks to everyone who came down and checked it out. Big thanks to Vissla and Surfing NSW for having us along. Take a listen to the Surf Splendor podcast for an insight into the great shaping that went down at the event.
