Bruno Troadec started shaping surfboards in 1976 in Brittany, France. He shaped with Dick Brewer, Terry Fitzgerald (Hot Buttered), Peter McAllum and Ned McMahon (T&C) to name just a few. Counting only boards shaped under Bruno's own labels, "Plastic Machine" and "Bruno Surfboards", he has shaped more than 10,000 surfboards. A man of the world, Bruno has shaped in Europe, Hawaii, Australia and South Africa before making surfboards in Southern California for the last ten years.
His team members include William Sue-A-Quan "Chino", Anthony Duarte, Tim Whelan, Guillaume Bourligueux, Hira Teaphoona and several local surfers.
