Phil “Whippet” Willis has been shaping surfboards for over 20 years. Specialising in custom built high quality handmade surfboards, Whippet has considerable experience in all elements of surfboard shaping, repair and manufacturing.
With Willis Surfboards you work directly with the designer and shaper.
