Bill Shrosbree began shaping surfboards in the 1960’s with labels like Greg Noll, Gordon & Smith, Bing, Con, and Velzy. As a young Surfer / Shaper, Shros developed innovative designs, some of which were ridden by legends like L.J. Richards. His most recognized design in those times was the “Shros Burger,” a shorter more versatile surfboard. People went crazy over the boards and the design won various competitions. Stewart Surfboards provided Shros with years worth of work, before he migrated his shaping back to Encinitas where he became the head shaper of Joel Tudor Surfboards. He has been working with Tudor for the past several years and has most recently focused on developing High Quality Custom Surfboards under the Fresh Pineapples label. Shros has expanded his vision with Fresh Pineapples and is working hard towards creating new and unique surfboard designs, as well as a limited line of apparel. A total of 45 years of Surfboard Industry experience has provided Bill with the knowledge of retro and modern designs, which makes his highly respected work extremely valuable.
