ASB MAGAZINE: On the occasion of his 23rd birthday, Globe announced the signing of young West Australian son of a gun, Shaun Manners as its latest head-to-toe Globe free surfer. Shaun’s rise from Taj’s Small Fries grommet to standout  free surfer got the attention of  fellow Globe team rider and WA icon, Taj Burrows.

“He’s just one of those talents that kinda came on late, I feel like, in the last 3 to 4 years. He’s just come in so hot and he just blows my mind,” enthused Taj.

Shaun joins fellow head-to-toe Globe surfers Taj Burrow and Dion Agius, along with Mark Appleyard, Sammy Montano and Aaron Kim on the Globe Skate team.


United by over three decades of boardsports, street culture, design and film, GLOBE represents an international network of riders and designers. Emerging out of the Melbourne underground skate scene of the 1970s, Australian brothers Stephen, Peter and Matt Hill started a skateboard distribution business that set off a new movement in Australia and eventually led to the launch of the GLOBE brand in 1994. GLOBE is premium boardsports footwear, apparel and skateboards.
