SHAPER

JOSE LUIS BARBOZA GUBO

Peruvian, Master’s Degree in Operations Management, Industrial Engineering Bachelor, Surfer and Shaper of Joso Surfboards.
As a Shaper, I’ve designed and shaped all type of boards and for all kinds of surfers, from beginners to professionals (high performance boards).
I’ve had the opportunity to be in Hawaii and meeting the work of recognized hawaiian shapers, as well as having in my hands the boards of professional surfers like Kelly Slater, John John Florence, Julian Wilson and other recognized surfers, being on the WSL events in Pipeline, Hossegor, Jeffreys Bay and Lemoore (Kelly Slater Wave Co.)

In April 2020, I won the first place in the AkuShaper Bells contest organized by the surfboards shaping machine and design software Company, AkuShaper from Australia.
The challenge was to design a board so that the surfing world champion Italo Ferreira, surfs in the Bells Beach Australia event organized by the WSL (World Surf League), on overhead conditions and 4 to 8 feet waves.
The evaluation of the designs was in charge of the recognized hawaiian shaper Wade Tokoro and the AkuShaper team.

This year 2022, I will have been shaping for 14 years.
