It’s no secret: the woman behind Mere Made Surfboards, Valerie Duprat, is someone we deeply admire here at Nouvelle Vague. There are a couple of reasons that could explain why but the one you need to know about the most is that she’s a surfboard shaper that never took no as an answer. For us, she’s the kind of “girl boss” young women should look up to.
In this video, enter in the shaping room with Valerie to see the process of shaping a surfboard. It’s beautifully filmed, interesting and most importantly, it makes us want to go out and ride one of her boards.
Have you heard of Valerie Duprat before? Did you enjoy the video?
