Superfrog

Superfrog

Gérard Dabbadie shaped his first board in 1972. A surf fanatic, he worked first on his own riding style and technique, then used the experience and his contact with the top surfers of the day to start creating his own highly personalized shapes that quickly found favor with many top European riders.

In 1975 while based in Hossegor, France (Surf Capital of Europe) he created his signature board brand “Superfrog”, and went on to become a fulltime professional shaper. With his philosophy of “shaping easy, fun-to-ride boards, for all kinds of conditions, with no compromise on strength and performance”, Gerard wasn’t content to follow trends of the day. He was among the first to build boards using epoxy resin and EPS foam, at the time a radical departure from the traditional mix of polyurethane foam and polyester resin that was much heavier and less durable.
 
A small detail perhaps, but one that really made his name among the pro surfers of the period. 40 years on, and Gerard is as attentive as ever to the detail of how his boards are made. But for Gerard, it’s all about shaping and surfing, rather than dreaming up marketing spiel : NO BLA-BLA, as the man himself would and does says.
