McCoy, Geoff

Creative, intense, cocksure Australian surfboard designer-shaper from the North Coast of New South Wales; best known for his 1980 reverse-teardrop Lazor Zap design and for his professional association with top Aussie pro Cheyne Horan.

McCoy was born (1948) in Gosford, New South Wales, the son of a farmer, began surfing at age 14 and shaping at 17. He made boards for Sydney mainstays Bennett Surfboards and Keyo Surfboards in the late '60s, and was cofounder of the short-lived M&M Surfboards. ...
