About Shaun Manners:
Modest, calm, and collected is the easiest way to describe Shaun “Chun” Manners. Shaun has been in the mix of professional surfing most of his life, contest after contest, only to transition into one of the most up-and-coming free surfers on the planet. Shaun blasted an unforgettable one at North Point which landed him two cover shots. He signed a deal with Former and blew minds on the Stab High Indonesia event. For the past year, Shaun has worked at his father, Matt Manner’s shaping factory, and recently moved to the southern corners of Australia to push the limits of his surfing.
