Meet the talented and passionate Paul Abbas P.A. Surfboards, the first surfboard shaper in the region!
In 2009, when he first started surf boarding, he couldn’t find a beginner’s board and decided to just make his own.
With more and more surfers in Lebanon, the demand for surfboards grew. With time, Paul mastered the art and crafting process and has been building custom boards of various styles and sizes since then.
The boards are almost entirely handmade and assembled, with final design touches by artists and designer friends as per each rider’s request.
