Greg Webber is a non-stop innovator and shaper for top surfers all over the planet. In 1970 Greg started shaping Styrofoam boards at age 10 and put timber fins in them and copied the shape from Hot Buttered and McCoy surfboards.

Three years later Greg started Webber surfboards with his brother John, building them in the family backyard. In 1983, Greg started Insight surfboards with Rod Dahlberg at Angourie, where they built boards for many pro surfers including Richard Cram, Greg Day and Joe Engel. Greg is perhaps best known for his extreme rocker designs built for Shane Herring in the 80’s, as well as boards for Taj Burrow during the early stages of his career. Greg has also made boards for the late Andy Irons, Damien Hobgood, Chris Ward and Josh Kerr.
