Shaper Rex MARECHAL of RMS Surfboards at

A NEW SHAPER at UWL SHAPERS CLUB
We are proud to introduce our 2017 range of Surfboards. Along with the boards that have been in the range for a while, all the latest models have gone through significant research and development with our team of amateur and professional surfers. Our mission is to offer one of the most comprehensive catalogue of boards of any Australian brand and to have the ability to intuitively customise a surfboard for those at any level from beginner to professional.

About the shaper REX MARECHAL :

Rex Marechal started his career hand shaping in the late 70’s in Southern California. After a long internship with some of the most prestigious factories in San Diego as a shaper, glasser, and sander, his surfing was blossoming on his own crafts. He quickly became popular for his shaping skills and started his own label in 1982. Now well into his third decade, he has had the opportunity to shape for some of the world’s best labels and surfers with great success. With his ghost shaping labels such as Channel Islands, Chilli, Xanadu, Eric Arakawa, Pyzel and Webber (to name a few) his experience shows through on the end product.

Mixing the old-school with the new, Rex has a foundation of shaping skills that have earned the respect from his peers. From every single facet in the art of surfboard manufacturing, to an educated understanding in CAD shaping and designing technology, which he embraced very early in it’s introduction, he is a complete shaper in tune with all of the latest developments in the industry. And as an accredited AKUshaper owner and operator, you can trust Rex to design a craft suited to your needs and specifications. All the boards are finish-shaped off by Rex in his state-of-the-art factory on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. And his staff of professionals in the glassing do the final glass work.

Passionate about surfing and surfboards, Rex strives for the best product possible and offers a complete range of surfboards developed for waves all over our globe.

BLOOD DIAMOND
The blood Diamond is not only one of the most popular models but probably the funnest board in your quiver. Incorporating the RMS dolphin-bottom with a flat rocker, wide nose and stumpy tail, it’s a dream come true in less than desirable conditions.
Refined rails and round outline make it turn tight in the pocket while being driven and speedy on takeoff.

TORKPEDO
This “Dolphin Bottom” has a double concave with deep vee and flat rocker.
The acceleratio and drive is phenomenal.
It can be ridden as a beginner board with hhigh volume or as a shortboard groveller for the advanced surfer. It has been our most popular step-down board because of its versatility and transcendence through any abillity of rider.
Works particulary well as a 4-fin so the 5-fin option is recommended.
Rider : Beginner to advanced
Surf : 1-5 ft
Best fit : 4-5” shorter than standard shortboard
Fins : 3, 4 and 5
