Shaper Michael Arnal is active as one of the shapers at "Hobie Surfboards" and "Trimcraft Surfboards".
With the help of his father, a mechanic engineer, the craftsmen of "HOBIE", the pride of Orange County, had a great influence on Michael, who started shaping in his home garage.
While working as a shop staff at HOBIE, he received knowledge, techniques and attitudes about shapes and surfboard builds from Donald Brink, Gary Larson, Josh Martin (Terry Martin's real life), and Tyler Warren. Have learned.
He is one of the next-generation standard bearers who can correctly shape all kinds of surfboards, such as traditional designs such as fish, eggs, and single fin logs, as well as asymmetry and finless.
