The Legend Shaper Award and Icon Shaper Award will be announced soon

“Contributions and breakthroughs on different levels in different components of the evolution of the surfboard. Someone who embodied the whole evolution of how we got to the second phase..." says Rabbit Bartholomew, one of the judges for the inaugural FCS Shaper Awards on who they're looking for in the Legend category of the FCS Shaper Awards.. Watch the video to hear Bugs and legends Tom Carroll and Brad Gerlach lament on the special relationship surfing has with the craft of surfboard making – and how that comes into the specifc category of Legend, for the FCS Shaper Awards.

More info on the FCS Shaper Awards: There are going to be two categories to the award: the Legend Shaper Award and the Icon Shaper Award, with one winner for each category.

The Legend Shaper Award will go to someone who has a minimum of 40 years commitment to the shaping trade, has made a significant contribution to surfboard design, is highly respected by their peers, and is currently shaping.

The Icon Shaper Award will go to someone slightly fresher, with a minimum of 20 years commitment to shaping, who has also shown an innovative and committed approach to shaping, as well as being highly regarded in the surfboard building trade, and is still currently shaping.

And once the legendary judges (Rabbit, TC and Brad Gerlach) make the final picks, we’ll be seeing Mick Fanning ride their boards – epic!
