Raised in Southern California, Dick Brewer was taught how to shape by Bob Shepherd and was also influenced by Pat Curren. Dick shaped his first work of art, a 9’ 10” gun, in 1959. Two years later, he would revolutionize the sport of surfing by founding Surfboards Hawaii, in Haleiwa. In the process, he created the performance board of choice for the biggest names in surfing during the 1960s. Butch Van Artsdalen won the first ever Haleiwa Championship on one of Dick’s boards. Dick Brewer is still revolutionizing the sport of surfing today, with his tow-in and windsurfing boards, as well as in his collaborations with Laird Hamilton.
