Shaping since the age of 19 and buying his first shaping machine in 2007, Shaper and owner of Nation Surfboards, Ryan Engle has immersed himself in all aspects of modern shaping. Located in the hills of San Clemente, minutes from world class breaks like Trestle, Sano, T Street, and Salt Creek. Ryan honed his shaping skills under the wing of the legendary Steve Boehne at Infinity Surfboards as he hand-shaped over 5000+ boards within his first 5 years. Over that time, Ryan formed a keen eye for templates, bottom contours, minuet rail details and fin placement, all skills that are essential for any successful surfboard manufacturer.
