Forrest Minchinton is a dust and salt driven shaper/rider from Huntington Beach California. He is the offspring of veteran shaper/surfer Mike Minchinton, who’s talents trickled down into Forrest’s veins.
At age 3 Forrest had caught his first wave, and by age 7 he rode his first motorcycle. These two passions would define the path of Forrest’s horizons.
Forrest is now a world renowned surfboard shaper that travels the world surfing, riding dirt bikes and making rideable art. But when he’s back home in California you can find him at his desert ranch getting dusty in his sand locked shaping bay, and riding endless dunes on one of his many dirt bikes.
