Shaun Tomson is the 1977 World Champion of the International World Surfing Tour. A native of South Africa, he spent fourteen years on the Tour (1976-1989), nine of which, he placed in the top six. With twelve contest wins, including a record-setting six year winning streak in the prestigious Gunston 500 in Durban, South Africa, he is considered one of the world's finest surfers.
Shaun was born in Durban, South Africa in 1955. He picked up his first surfboard at age 10, and working the steep, powerful walls at The Bay of Plenty on Durban's beachfront, he honed his powerful style to perfection.

He is still considered the finest tube-rider in the world and has opened the doors of wave riding creativity for each new generation of surfers.
