Gavin is one of Australia’s leading boat builders and is widely respected within the Shipwright industry. Coupled with his long time participation in Surf Lifesaving it was only natural that his Shipwright business, Slipstream Marine, would move into Surf Craft manufacture. Gavin’s passion for a perfect product has been instrumental in guiding Slipstream Surf to the fore of Surf Craft design and production techniques. Gavin is a member of North Bondi SLSC and is very mindful of what both athletes and clubs need to achieve before they hit the water.
