Originally a Provence local, Renaud ended up in the southwest of France through his family in Les Landes.

During his studies as an engineer Mr.Pons got fascinated with applied mathematics and geometrics, which, added to a sanely insane obsession with 70s and 80s retro shapes put him on the Path of the Shaper.

His main focus still lies with shaping fish, from little 5’4 nugs up to crazy glideresque long fish; though he´s been expanding his repertoire recently with some finely tuned pintails ,midsized trackers and asymms among others. Think retro alternative shapes with specific tweaks for modernized rails, bottoms & rockers.

Renaud has been making a name for himself locally with his technical, finely tuned shapes and exquisitely finished boards (also sanded & glassed by him). We’re proud to offer him a podium so go check out his stock shapes in our Bidart or online store.
