Mark Neville: British surfing hero

Mark Neville, on the best funboard and longboard shapers in the world, has tragically passed away. The 45-year-old surfer from Newquay was missing since the first days of February and his vehicle was found in a car park, at Pentire Headland, in Newquay.

Police confirmed his body was found at Fistral Beach.

Accurate, inventive, subtle, careful and patient, Neville worked for several surf brands such as Hobie, Nine Plus, HIC, Rusty Town & Country, Seabase, etc. His work was very much appreciated in Europe.

Mark had recently joined the shaping team of Seabase, lending his professional hand in particular to high performance and traditional longboard ranges. The surf company is preparing a book of Mark's achievements and life within the surfing industry, which will be given to Mark's wife and children.

Everyone is invited to contribute with pertinent photographs of Mark, so that his legacy is remembered, particularly by his young children.
