Graham Smith, aka ‘Gee’ was first introduced to surfboards at the age of 12, when he popped into Max Wetteland’s factory, one of SA surfing legend’s, based at the end of West Street, Durban. He was just helping out and the rest is history! He felt having a son like Jordy has helped him to understand what it takes to build boards that really work, as it has always been a consistent venture of trial and error with Jordy growing up. This lead Graham to being really content with what he was doing at that time – manufacturing and shaping, day in and day out – making him one of the most sought after shapers for our South African waters, a high performance surf zone at it’s best! He has maintained a respectful reputation, and one would class him as one of the SA industry leaders for his progressive approach in surf design by paying attention to finer detail when developing Jordy’s boards and models.
