Thomas Bexon

Thomas Bexon grew up in Blackbutt, Queensland, where he surfed on the Gold Coast before moving to Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast when he was 13.

He became interested in making boards when he realised that no one seemed to make the kinds of boards that he was after. Now living in Noosa, surfing one of the best logging waves in the world, Thomas has become a well known shaper, working in his factory under the name 'Thomas Surfboards'.

Tom Wegener

Tom started shaping surfboards in 1979, with his brother Jon taking up the planer a few years later.

Working together, Tom and Jon have produced many surfboards, Jon is based in Encinitas, California, while Tom moved to Noosa Heads, Australia in 1998. In 2001, Tom discovered that paulownia is the best wood for making surfboards with, it is highly unusual in that it doesn't consume salt water. Tom stopped making foam surfboards and turned only to paulownia wood and has since made over 300 hollow wood finned surfboards. Tom's factory is a green factor, there are no toxic chemicals and almost no waste. Tom's manufacturing processes helped with the popularity of alaias in 2005 and he was named Shaper of the Year in 2009.
