Pictured with Shapers Steve James and Roger Tout. Also pictured above riding a 1957 Velzy & Jacobs balsa board. Mark is an avid vintage surf collector!
Mark is one of the most stoked surfers you will come across!! He started MellowWave in 2002 with a surf report for The Witterings and making surfboards out of his garage.
He can mostly be found in the sea!
Steve James has been shaping and glassing since the 80s.
Originally from Brighton Steve moved to Bude following his love for surfing, where he ran his own company called SpecialBrew Surfboards. Steve has shaped for a few Pro surfers over the years.
He is now taking a back seat unfortunately due to health but still stoked to help out with a life time of knowledge.
Roger Tout is the current shaper for MellowWave, he has been shaping since 1970 so he fitted in nicely taking over from Steve in 2019.
Roger has already made a good number of boards for MellowWave and is always stoked on life! Roger has also shaped for a few pro surfers over the years.
Emma Haylock is the official photographer for MellowWave and runs Shutterbuguk/Shutterbug Photography. Emma's surf photos are incredible and have been displayed in galleries and magazines.
Keep an eye on her social media pages as she may well get that shot of you!!!
Emma also helped with MellowWave paddleboards 2017-2020
She even has a large collection of Vintage Bellyboards!
