Eden Saul | Owner and Shaper of Dead Kooks Surfboards.
Born and raised in Lennox Head on the Far North Coast of New South Wales Australia, a place I still call home. Growing up and living on the East Coast of Australia has provided a bevy of right-hand points to test, play with and refine what I’ve been riding and shaping and has greatly influenced what a Dead Kooks board is all about. Dead Kooks Surfboards has evolved over the past 9-10 years from a backyard hobby making boards for myself and friends to a full-time job working with world champions and a string of the world’s top surfers. Drawing inspiration from shapes of old, the boards we make are anything but retro. Everything is designed, shaped and further refined with performance in mind, tackling everything from 12ft gliders, paddle guns for Jaws to refined modern logs, fish, singles, and shorties. Over the past years I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world shaping and surfing and doing what I love, and as long as people are stoked and I’m excited, I’ll keep doing that for as long as my body and mind allows. – Eden Saul
