ALTE is a textbook example of a hobby that got out of control. Ad caught the shaping bug during a study project. After experiencing the enormous kick of surfing on his own shape, even though the first one was a disaster, he has been hooked ever since.
Nowadays, after finishing work, he is headed straight for his workshop with a shaping room. Ad has made thirty boards - and counting -, one of which was awarded the 1st prize at the O'Neill Shape Off of 2017.
