SHApER:  REX MARECHAL

Rex Marechal started his career hand shaping in the late 1970s 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.

Rex 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 its introduction, he is a complete shaper in tune with all of the latest developments in the industry.

As an accredited AKU shaper owner and operator, you can trust Rex to design a craft suited to your needs and specifications. All RMS 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 glasswork.
