JC Hawaii Profile Picture
Located on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, John “JC” Carper is considered one of the top shapers in the world. Working with many of the elite pro surfers on the ASP Tour, JC has translated high performance needs into shapes that have built him a reputation for cutting edge, core designs worldwide.

His beginnings start with studying the great legendary shapers such as Greg Noll, Nat Young, Bob McTavish, Dick Brewer, Rick Irons Sr., Ben Aipa, Bill Barnfield, Rusty Preisendorfer, Pat Rawson, and Glen Minami. Adding to this, over the course of thirty years John has worked for such notable surfboard companies as Surfboards Hawaii, Lightning Bolt, Island Fusion, Rusty and Hawaiian Island Creations. Like all great artists, however, John has carved his own path that has led to two World Championships, “tow in” boards for 60 foot waves at Jaws, to shaping boards for virtually every professional surfer alive.
