We are stoked to announce that Indosole is doing a collaboration with Surfing Magazines 2011 shaper of the year Robert Weiner of Roberts surfboards. We met up with him the other day and not only is he one of the best shapers in the world, he is an all around awesome guy and completely shreds on a surfboard. Roberts has been pushing surf technology since the early 90s and has shaped boards for people like Torrey Meister, recent winner of the Coldwater Classic, to WCT guys like Jordy Smith. Roberts is best known for his board he created in 2008, the white diamond. This board is a little shorter and wider than your standard short board and Robert added a diamond tail for more release and tighter turns. This design gave a small wave board more high performance ability. The white diamond really started receiving attention on a Surfer Magazine Design Forum and has accumulated over 180,000 views and over 2,000 comments making it the most viewed and discussed forum in the world. Keep an eye out for Indosole special edition Roberts Sandal that will be coming out soon! Also, if you want to take your surfing to the next level, we recommend testing out a White Diamond or one of Roberts other amazing creations. Heres a picture of Robert shaping his newest creation the dream catcher while rocking our black boat shoes.
