I LOVE shaping surfboards and I'm kinda obsessed with this craft. Even though I am about to shape my 220th board I'm still considering myself as a novice but I hope to become a master one day... This blog is a virtual portfolio and a diary of my journey in the shaping world. Feel free to leave comments or contact me directly at valerie@meremadesurfboards.com.

-Shaper of Mère-Made Surfboards

Sunday, November 1, 2015


Yesterday Mère-Made Surfboards has made its entrance in the .com world.
The idea of a "real website" was not really something I had in mind. I am so busy 24/7. I didn't even have time to think about it. I was totally fine with my Blogger account until I started to exchange ideas with my friend Corey Walter, a free lance photographer/web designer. Because he had already all the visual material to build the website (we worked on many photoshoots together) it made total sense he would be the ideal person to create my first official website. And here it is: click here to enter.  Purple is the theme color, of course. Corey and I worked together for the text but he created everything else with the Mère-Made touch he knows well. I am very stoked to share this my blogger family. And, by the way, I am keeping that blog page I love so much. I have met so many great people through Blogger that there is no chance that I stop writing those posts!!

please click here to take a quick look at my new website!

Oh, and I almost forgot... you can now email me at valerie@meremadesurfboards.com !!!!
