Cooper Chapman

This image was from a series of images taken for a small project for Coastal Watch Online. Cooper Chapman is riding a replica board made by Australian legend, surfer and shaper Simon Anderson. This was the same shape as Simon’s 1981 Bells Beach winning board. Unfortunately Simon had finished his session this morning so no images were taken but it was great to see how a board with so much history in its design can be surfed so well by one of the countries best young surfers.
